Champion of the acoustic guitar, this vibrant singer/songwriter has been spreading “Sunshine” through earnest songs, feel-good honky-tonk, and heartfelt bluegrass for more than 40 years.

  • Best known for his Billboard Top 5 pop hit “Sunshine,” Jonathan Edwards’s repertoire includes many classics such as lovelorn folk song “Sometimes in the Morning” and playful party tune “Shanty.”
  • Raised mainly in Northern Virginia, Edwards picked up the guitar as a teenager and became a regular at local clubs while attending college in Ohio. He opened for acts like The Allman Brothers Band and B.B. King and released his eponymous debut in 1971.
  • In 2012 Edwards released Top 40, a 2-disc collection of his best studio recordings that spans more than 4 decades. A year before, he released contemporary folk record My Love Will Keep, which features his “strong and richly textured” voice, according to AllMusic.com.
  •  In addition to his folk music records, Edwards recorded country album Honky-Tonk Stardust Cowboy (1972). While on the national Broadway tour of Pump Boys and Dinettes, he met and joined popular bluegrass group The Seldom Scene and released album Blue Ridge in 1985.
  •  “An Edwards performance is an unforgettable roller-coaster ride which combines his remarkable singing, storytelling, and wit.”—Martha's Vineyard Times
