Warm as summer sunshine, real as the truth, intimate as a long overdue visit between old friends…such is a Jonathan Edwards concert. Four decades into a stellar career of uncompromising musical integrity, the man simply delivers. Songs of passion, insight and humor, all rendered in his pure and powerful tenor. Edwards began his career opening for acts like the Allman Brothers Band and B. B. King. In 1972 he recorded his first album. Since then, 15 albums later, including Blue Ridge, his standard-setting collaboration with bluegrass favorites, The Seldom Scene, he continues to thrill audiences. “It is really gratifying to hear someone say at a concert, ‘Your stuff has meant a lot to me over the years.” The ‘stuff’ he’s referring to is a highly respected repertoire that includes classics as “Honky Tonk Stardust Cowboy’, ‘Sometimes’, ‘One Day Closer’, ‘Don’t Cry Blue’, ‘Emma’, ‘Everybody Knows Her,” “Athens County”, and everyone’s favorite ‘Shanty’. Of course, the anthemic ‘Sunshine (Go Away Today),” that fierce proclamation of protest and independence that resonated with thousands and thousands of men and women when first released in 1971.
