The “Not Your Everyday Ed” Show at NYC’s hottest new venue, SubCulture, featured live interpretative illustrations by internationally acclaimed artist Shantell Martin.
Ms. Anna Rose opened the evening in the club’s open and excited atmosphere. Ed played nine songs and was backed by a terrific group which included Oscar Albis Rodriguez on lead guitar, Lee Nadel on bass, Doug Yowell on drums and Antonia Dunbar on cello. Photos by Taylor Ballantyne.
Ed’s longest set to date, over 90 minutes, was performed in front of an audience numbering close to 100 people at Cleere’s Theatre in Kilkenny. He played on the festival’s opening night, Friday, May 3, 2013 with Clive Barnes on lap steel and lead guitars, Mai Bloomfield on cello and backing vocals, vocalist Sharon Murphy and the “There Are No Strangers in Kilkenny Town Choir.” The set list included on-stage audience participation from 7 year old Mick Carroll during “Potholes” as well as a cover of the great “folk” song, “Purple Rain.” If you missed the show, the set list is included.
Ed shared a story or two with Martin Bridgeman prior to the Kilkenny Rhythm and Roots Festival. He also cut three tracks with Mai Bloomfield on cello. The show aired on May 5, 2013 but you can stream it right here…
