CYNDI CRAVEN & JERRY BRUNNER and HARM’S WAY
Cyndi Craven & Jerry Brunner
Jerry Brunner and Cyndi Craven have been playing music together since the 1980s – and so far, they haven’t come up with a good reason to stop. The music they produce together results from profound friendship, heaping helpings of creativity, and decades of performing together and on their own.
Cyndi is also an accomplished songwriter and recording artist. Her song topics include a train from the train’s point of view, a dog with an unfortunate reputation, a guardian angel with a crooked wing (and possibly a criminal record), starfish habitat, secret turtle language, “and of course, peace, love, and everything.”
Cyndi and Jerry are beloved veterans of the Atlanta acoustic music scene. They’ve delighted audiences countless times at Lena’s Place, Fiddler’s Green, Waller’s Coffeehouse and other venues. Their two guitars and two voices blend up an assortment of original songs and recast covers by folk music greats as well as lesser-known artists. The result is a satisfying serving of comfort music with a side order of good times. Come enjoy… you’ll be glad you did.
Harm’s Way is an Atlanta-based folk/Americana music group that has entertained in the Southeast since the mid-1970s. They play mostly monthly concert series, private events, parks or wineries, where their mostly acoustic sound is always well received. Their song list includes originals and many familiar classics by favorites such as Crosby, Still, Nash & Young, The Eagles and the Everly Brothers, as well as many folk tunes you may not be familiar with but will enjoy just as much.
Group leader Harmon Koeltz began his career as a drummer and band leader in high school. While playing bars, parties and weddings, he found his voice during one gig, when the band saw that he was singing along while drumming and remembered the lyrics better than the lead vocalist!
Vocalist Liz Bradley has been lead-singing in banquet orchestras since the 1980s. She sings pop, folk, rock, traditional big band/swing and more.
Phil Griffin is a singer/songwriter born and raised in Atlanta. He began playing guitar at age nine when his father brought home a Harmony acoustic, and he’s been playing ever since. Phil has been making his way through the ever-growing Atlanta music scene and can be found around town playing lead guitar for Harm’s Way.
