Jonathan Edwards folk music legend
Jonathan Edwards is an American singer, songwriter
and musician best known for his 1972 hit single "Sunshine".
His hit song "Shanty" has been played by radio stations around the country as the "Friday Song" or the "420" song. "Don't Cry Blue" has knocked around the blue grass circles as a favorite. Jonathan's Albums have never been out of print and if you listen you'll understand why Jonathan's songs have stood the test of time.
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.

His work can be found in virtually every genre. Artists as diverse as Barbra Streisand, Little Feat, Selena and Ray Charles have performed his songs.
