    I'm pretty sure this is Danny Gatton accompanying her on Summertime. Both were Washington DC- based musicians.

    Completely agree. A perfect complement to her singing. What a talent.

    Actually, I think that's DC-based guitarist Keith Grimes, who played with Eva for several years. CS

    I'm a huge fan. I heard about her maybe three or four years ago. Been hooked ever since.

    lucky you ...who else are you East Coasters keeping off the stage coach ....amazing voice and style on this girl and I truly can not believe I missed her ...Eva's rendition of Imagine had my wife in tears...and so tragic to have lost her so young RIP Eva
