Bright Morning Star 20th Reunion Tour
with Eve Goldberg opening

"They're doing exactly what Woody Guthrie and I tried to do forty years ago." Pete Seeger.
Bright Morning Star (Court Dorsey, Cheryl Fox, George Fulginiti-Shakar, Ken Giles, Charlie King, Marcia Taylor and Laura Kolb) toured North America from 1978 - 1990 mixing folk, country, blues, jazz and a good dose of theater. Almost 20 years later they're back, re-grouped with two decades of individual performance experience under their collective belt, livelier and more astute then ever. They combine their musical and theatrical skills in a journey through the worlds of drama, politics, people, humor, satire, and spirituality. Their songs are a rare combination of powerful, often original lyrics and rich melodies that shine in intricate harmonies. In the course of a concert, they pass around guitars, fiddle, bass, banjo, harmonica, recorder, trombone, piano and the occasional kazoo. Their cabaret style adds a comic irony to traditional songs and a surprising depth to contemporary pieces. Bright Morning Star performances are dancingly interpreted by signer Laura Kolb.

Eve was born in the Boston area but has called Toronto, Ontario home since 1981. Her watercolour voice and solid guitar style has become a favourite at festivals, folk clubs, and concert series across Canada and the US. With an equal passion for traditional music, and for the art of songwriting and interpretation, Eve's performances are intimate and relaxed, moving effortlessly from folk classics to original gems, all wrapped up in her clear, pure voice and dynamic guitar playing.
