Eric Kufs: Surf City Voice Artist of the Month

By John Earl
Surf City Voicee

Eric Kufs, folk singer, is the Surf City Voice artist of the month. Kufs performs in downtown Huntington Beach on Main St. most Tuesdays from 6-9 pm. He dishes out his own original, catchy, and sometimes blues-like, folk songs with a great countertenor voice, guitar, and wit. He sings all the pop tunes too and knows how to entertain, but isn’t afraid to play uncensored Woody Guthrie, even behind the Orange Curtain, and realizes that, in the end, it’s all about the music. As this video shows, Kufs takes (usually well) a few punches that come with being a busker; but, above all, he lifts the art of folk music to a higher level, making him the best folk singer, and one of the best performers, in the three-year history of Surf City Nights. Like Guthrie riding the rails, Kufs travels the busker circuit from Santa Monica to downtown Huntington Beach and does gigs across the country with his equally eclectic band, Common Rotation.

A full profile will follow.
