Jonathan Edwards brings his guitar to Montclair’s Outpost, ready to impress the town!
Make plans with Outpost in the Burbs as they bring Jonathan Edwards and special guest Luke Brindley to the stage on Friday, June 24. The performance will be held at The Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Montclair, located at 67 Church St.
Jonathan Edwards is an American singer-songwriter and musician best known for his 1971 hit single, “Sunshine.” Edwards was born on July 28, 1946 in Minnesota. At the age of six, he moved with his family to Virginia, where he grew up. At the age of eight, he began singing in church and learned how to play piano by ear. As he attended military school, he also began playing guitar and composing his own songs. As a teenager, he began to perform in front of audiences. While studying art at Ohio University, he fell in love with local clubs, playing rock, folk and blues bands.
“Jonathan Edwards secured his place in musical history with his 1971 song ‘Sunshine,’ and he still sings it in concert today with as much enthusiasm as he did then. He is constantly engaging with a live audience by sharing stories, and playing infectious melodies with meaningful and relevant lyrics. Jonathan Edwards is one of the most enjoyable nights of music I have witnessed. If you don’t have your tickets yet to see him at Outpost In The Burbs this month, don’t wait any longer,” said David Stone, local concert producer and board member of South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC).
Luke Brindley is releasing Invitation to Joy, a 12-song album featuring fingerstyle guitar instrumentals. Expect musical contributions from David Mansfield (Bob Dylan, T-Bone Burnett, Bobby McFerrin) on mandolin and fiddle, Todd Isler (Sting, Mike Gordon) on percussion and Joe Fitzgerald (Pat Metheny, Dave Liebman) on bass.
