The word 'legend' is often used to describe veteran folk-rocker Jonathan Edwards, who burst on the music scene 40 years ago with the mega-hit “Sunshine (Go Away Today)” and he followed up with hits like Emma, Don’t Cry Blue, Shanty, and many more. Four decades into a stellar career of uncompromising musical integrity, the man simply delivers night after night – songs of passion, songs of insight, songs of humor, all rendered in that pure and powerful tenor which, like fine wine, has grown sweeter with age. A vital and relevant artist in today's folk and Americana scenes, he recently released his newest CD Jonathan Edwards Top 40 highlighting his most requested songs from the past 40 years.
“Edwards’ voice is so naturally malleable that all he really needs is a song with a strong melodic hook and he’s home free.” The Washington Post
“An Edwards performance is an unforgettable roller-coaster ride which combines his remarkable singing, storytelling, and wit.” Martha’s Vineyard Times
