Common Ground began their career in the late 1970's, bringing their original brand of folk rock to people at the height of the punk movement. Well, why not? The band has been pleasing audiences all over the world through record releases and live performances. Sadly, original singer/songwriter/guitarist Cheryl Cloud passed away in 1995 after a long, valiant struggle with cancer. At her request (and for the love of playing together!) they have continued on ever since, winning larger and larger audiences all the time.
