“If you laugh, you think and you cry, that’s a full day. That’s a heck of a day.” - Jim Valvano
Steve Brogden here. Those words perfectly describe a Berkley Hart concert. Jeff Berkley and Calman Hart can bring you to tears and make you laugh … in the same song!! And they’ll add some food for thought for good measure. I have seen them several times and I never leave their concerts without a huge grin on my face. It’s a true privilege to present them to you.
This from their web site:
“Berkley Hart have found something that works. The combination of Kerrville New Folk Songwriter Award winner, Jeff Berkley, and stand-out wordsmith, Calman Hart, creates a pairing that has become one of the premier acoustic duos touring the country. Every Berkley Hart show is packed with entertainment as the duo combines their natural down-home humor with poignant, delicate, masterfully crafted lyrics delivered with stunning harmony and musicianship. Between songs, the obvious camaraderie between these two top songwriters shines as they effortlessly play off each other in what can only be called genuine comedy. Add in virtuoso playing from both Jeff Berkley (guitar) and Calman Hart (guitar, harmonica) and it’s easy to see why the two have become live favorites.
“Both Berkley and Hart emerged from the Southern California coffeehouse circuit, each building sizeable followings of their own before joining forces. As a duo for more than ten years now, they have become fixtures on the folk circuit, making appearances at the Kerrville Folk Festival, as well as playing some of folk’s most prestigious venues including The Birchmere in Virginia and The Bluebird Café in Nashville. In 2005, they staged the first “O Berkley, Where Hart Thou?” a multi-artist extravaganza that features music from the film “O Brother Where Art Thou?” and other ‘old-timey’ tunes.
With a DVD of the first show now available, Berkley Hart have since presented several additional shows, featuring different performers. Additionally, the duo continues the “Berkley Hart House Concert Revolution.” They ask fans to host an annual Berkley Hart show in their own homes and invite the people they know. They’ve played hundreds of house concerts not just in San Diego, but around the country, and have helped establish some now well-known series.”
