Eve Goldberg sings music that draws honey from the rock of life. A compelling writer and interpreter, Eve's watercolour voice and solid instrumental style (guitar, ukulele) has made her a favourite with audiences across Canada and the US. Her performances are intimate and relaxed, moving effortlessly from folk classics to original gems. She has released three solo CDs and is a member of the folk/roots duo Gathering Sparks.
She is also a much in-demand teacher who leads workshops and classes for adults at camps, festivals and community colleges. Since the beginning of the pandemic she has been teaching online classes and workshops from her home studio in Toronto.
Beyond performing and teaching, Eve has been involved in numerous community efforts over the years. She was one of the organizers of The Woods Music and Dance Camp for over twenty years, was a founder of Common Thread: Community Chorus of Toronto, helped start ArtsCan Circle, served on the board of the Ontario Council of Folk Festival (now Folk Music Ontario), and was the first office manager at Borealis Records.
Recently Eve was recognized with the 2021 Estelle Klein Award for her outstanding contributions to the folk music community in Ontario.
