Infinity Music Hall Presents Jonathan Edwards

04/02/2011

Route 44, Norfolk, CT 06058. Phone: 866-666-6306.

On Saturday, April 2, 2011--8PM-- at Infinity Music Hall Jonathan Edward will perform.  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, 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. This is one veteran performer who is neither grizzled nor nostalgic. These days Jonathan Edwards, a vital and relevant artist in today's folk and Americana scenes, is most likely to be found on the road with longtime accompanist Stuart Schulman on bass, piano, fiddle, and vocals and Taylor Armerding, formerly of Northern Lights, on mandolin and high-tenor vocals. "I've been ... doing what I do best, which is playing live in front of people. I've been concentrating on that and loving it," he says. An artist 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.'" Since 1971, Jonathan has released 15 albums, including Blue Ridge, his standard-setting collaboration with bluegrass favorites the Seldom Scene, and Little Hands, his collection of children's songs, which was honored with a National Library Association award. As for album #16, Jonathan says, "Young people that are getting back to the land and trying to get off the power grid encourage me. My next studio album will reflect some of those themes."  Tickets: $35/$50. Check the website for further information.
