Imagine a kitchen party where Mother Maybelle Carter, Ella Fitzgerald, Mississippi John Hurt, Bessie Smith, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, and Patsy Cline show up, and you begin to get a sense of what it feels like inside songwriter Eve Goldberg's head. Never one to restrict herself to one genre of music, Eve has performed her trademark mixture of folk, blues, country, bluegrass, old time, and jazz in venues ranging from small house concerts to the prestigious Kennedy Center in Washington DC since 1990.

Eve's performances are uplifting, intimate and relaxed, and her watercolour voice and solid guitar style has become a favourite at festivals, folk clubs, and concert series across Canada and the US. Along the way she's earned the respect of legendary musicians like Peggy Seeger, Geoff Muldaur, and Penny Lang.
She has released three albums to widespread acclaim -- "Ever Brightening Day," (1998) "Crossing the Water," (2003) and “A Kinder Season” (2006). Her instrumental tune "Watermelon Sorbet" was used for years as the opening theme to "Richardson's Roundup" on CBC Radio One.

Eve is also one part of the folk/roots group Gathering Sparks with musical partner Jane Lewis. In a short time, Gathering Sparks has gained a reputation for sparkling harmonies, solid instrumentation (piano, guitar, ukulele, accordion, and banjo), and stellar songwriting. Gathering Sparks was nominated for a 2014 Canadian Folk Music Award for Vocal Group of the year based on their self-titled debut EP and is beginning work on their first full-length album.
