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 songs of passion, songs of insight, songs of humor. 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.

Doors open at 7 p.m. and showtime is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door and seating is limited. Call 356-9980 or visit www.believeinbooks.org to purchase tickets and for a list of all upcoming events.
