Music legend Jonathan Edwards will play at the St. Mane Theatre

Posted in Lanesboro Features

Lanesboro, Minn. – Music legend Jonathan Edwards will perform at the St. Mane Theatre on Saturday, March 28, 2015, 7:30 p.m. There will be a reception for all concert attendees following the show, held upstairs in the newly renovated studio space at the St. Mane Theatre, catered by Johnny Mango’s.

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. “Sometimes, in our darker moments, we imagine our music not finding receptive ears, unable to reach open hearts. So it is really gratifying to hear [someone say], ‘Your stuff has meant a lot to me over the years.’” The show at the St. Mane Theatre will no doubt feature some of Jonathan’s beloved songs like “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)”, which was written as a fierce proclamation of protest and independence set to deceptively upbeat music. “Sunshine” resonated with the thousands and thousands of frustrated and angry young men and women of the day. “It was just at the time of the Vietnam War and Nixon. It was looking bad out there. That song meant a lot to a lot of people during that time – especially me,” Jonathan says. It got its start on a Boston radio station and quickly made its way to the top five on the national charts, earning him a gold record in 1971.

Jonathan’s story – and his journey as a musician - is as good as his music. That journey began here in Minn., where he spent the first six years of his life before his father’s government job brought the family to Va. It was there that young Jon first sang in public – a solo in church at the age of eight – and began experimenting with songs played by ear on the family piano. On the brink of his teens, after only a few music lessons from the lady next door, he found that he was inclined to do his best learning on his own; in the decades to come, this would prove to be true not only with regard to music but also to life in general. Progressing from piano to guitar because, after all, it was the ’60s, Jonathan began marching to the tunes in his own head rather than the ones dic .....
