Jonathan Edwards with Paul Barrere & Fred Tackett of Little Feat
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, 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.
who measures his success by his ability to attract and take good care
of an audience for four decades, Jonathan maintains that it is the
feedback he receives after his shows that keeps him going. "It is really
gratifying to hear [someone say], 'Your stuff has meant a lot to me
over the years.'"
The "stuff" he's referring to is a 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 that resonated with thousands and thousands of
frustrated and angry young men and women when it was first released in
1971. Almost 40 years later, at show after show, the song continues to
be embraced by faithful followers and new fans alike.
