Community Involvement

In addition to performing and teaching, Eve has been active in the music community over the years in a number of different roles. She has a wide and varied background in performing, adult education, the independent music business, teaching, writing, and coaching. She helped found two non-profit arts organizations—Common Thread Community Chorus of Toronto and ArtsCan Circle—and she has served on the boards of Common Thread, The Woods Music and Dance Camp, the Ontario Council of Folk Festivals (Folk Music Ontario), and Local 1000 of the American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada. As President of Local 1000 for three years, Eve led the organization through the Covid pandemic, helping raise a significant amount of money for the Local's Emergency Relief Fund, which assisted many Local 1000 members.

She was the first office manager at Borealis Records, overseeing all aspects of running the record label for five years before embarking on her full-time performing and teaching career.

In addition to helping run The Woods Music and Dance Camp for over 25 years, Eve was also involved in developing the artistic program for the Haliburton Winter Folk Camp, and has advised other organizations on programming for conferences, festivals and camps. She has led and participated in panels at Folk Music Ontario, Folk Alliance, the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance, Folk Alliance Region Midwest, and Folk Alliance Canada. 

Her commitment to community music stems from a lifelong love of participatory music-making, and whether she is performing, teaching, or volunteering for a community group, Eve always brings a spirit of inclusion and positivity to what she does. 

In 2021, Eve was recognized for her contributions to the folk community in Ontario with the prestigious Estelle Klein Award.

Eve is available for Community Consultations and Speaking Engagements.
