"An Edwards performance is an unforgettable roller-coaster ride which combines his remarkable singing, storytelling, and wit." -- Martha's Vineyard Times Warm as summer sunshine, real as the truth, intimate as a long overdue visit between old friends ? such is a Jonathan Edwards show. With more than 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 only grown sweeter with age. His highly respected repertoire that includes such classics as ?Honky Tonk Stardust Cowboy,? ?Sometimes,? ?One Day Closer,? ?Don?t Cry Blue,? ?Emma,? ?Everybody Knows Her,? ?Athens County,? and everyone?s favorite ode to putting a good buzz on, ?Shanty.? And then, of course, there?s the anthemic ?Sunshine (Go Away Today),? that fierce proclamation of protest and independence. Almost 40 years later, at show after show, this timeless song continues to be embraced by faithful followers and new fans alike.
