1st Thursday of the Month at 6:00 p.m.
- Hosted by Pat Crawford
Join us for WUWF's long running live music program, broadcast each month from Historic Pensacola Village. Doors open at 5:00 p.m. and the show begins promptly at 6:00 p.m. On March 5, host Pat Crawford welcomes Ed Gerhard, Louise Mosrie, and Cliff Eberhardt.
From Tokyo to Rome and venues across the US, Ed Gerhard has performed for audiences all over the world. Performing on 6-string, 12-string, slide guitar or Acoustic Hawaiian Lap Slide, Gerhard captivates his audiences with virtuosity, generosity and sly humor. Known for his gorgeous tone and compositional depth, Gerhard can move a listener with a single note.
Scott Alalrik of the Boston Globe said it best when he wrote "Gerhard does not write instrumentals. He writes songs only a guitar can sing." Along with players like Ben Harper and David Lindley, Gerhard’s unique approach to the Weissenborn (an acoustic Hawaiian lap slide guitar) is playing a significant role in reinvigorating interest in this somewhat esoteric but beautiful instrument.
Cliff Eberhardt has recorded nine albums and has produced and arranged seven more for artists including Dar Williams, Laurie MacAllister (Red Molly) and Louise Mosrie. He was a staff songwriter for Cherry Lane music and has a song book published by Hal Leonard. His compositions have been recorded By Richie Havens, Shawn Colvin, Lucy Kaplanski, Russ Taff, Erasure, and many others.
Cliff wrote original music for and performed in the Folger Shakespeare Theatre’s production of the Taming of the Shrew, which won him a Helen Hayes Award. He has also taught at The Swannanoa Gathering, SAMW, Rocky Mt. Folks Fest, SummerSongs East, SummerSongs West, Alaska Song School, the City Honors School in Buffalo NY. Cliff is currently Artist in Residence at Dennison University.
Louise grew up in the small town just outside of Nashville, TN on a farm with British parents and several siblings - riding horses, writing poetry and singing with the radio. After college in Knoxville, she "borrowed" her brother's Sears guitar, bought a simple chord book and started writing songs. Her early material was mostly acoustic pop as she tried to channel her English roots while listening to Everything But the Girl and The Sundays.
Fast forward a few years, a move back to Nashville and some deep soul searching, Louise began writing songs about the South – what she knew and where she grew up. She enjoys a large and loyal fan base and has released a series of critically acclaimed CDs including, "Lay It Down," released in 2014.
Doors open at 5:00 p.m. and the show begins promptly at 6:00 p.m. All RadioLive performances take place at the Museum of Commerce, 205 E. Zarragossa Street in Historic Pensacola Village.
