I have a special announcement about a very special performer coming to Concerts at the Bodie House. As many of you know, we were able to get Jonathan Edwards ("Sunshine") to come to Concerts at the Bodie House on Friday, May 16, 2008. I announced this to all of you early, as I wanted to give you first dibs on seats, and the original show sold out right away (within 24 hours). We opened up another show at 4PM, however, since our new venue at the Thousand Oaks Library has turned out to be so nice, I've decided to move the show there and do just one 8PM show. IF YOU HAVE RESERVATIONS FOR THE 4PM SHOW, PLEASE NOTE THEY WILL BE MOVED TO 8PM. This show will sell out incredibly fast, so please make your reservations early if you plan on coming. New details are below...

Jonathan Edwards Bio:
The word "legend" is often used to describe veteran folk/rocker Jonathan Edwards, whose 1971 million-selling song "Sunshine" ("go away today...") brought him instant fame. He was born in Minnesota and detoured into blues and rock before realizing he was hooked on folk music. During his 36-year career he has recorded 15 albums, performed throughout North America and in Holland, and collaborated with artists such as Emmylou Harris, Jimmy Buffett, Maura O'Connell, Christine Lavin and Cheryl Wheeler. His 1987 children's album, LITTLE HANDS, was selected by the National Library Association as a "Notable Children's Recording."
His varied career has included theater, commercials, record production, and 2 movie soundtracks. He narrated and performed in the Media Artists series “Cruising America's Waterways”, which started airing on PBS-TV stations in 2001. "Sunshine" can be heard in the 2004 Will Ferrell movie, "Anchorman". His most recent CD, “Live in Massachusetts” was released in December, 2006, and Media Artists just released a 90-minute documentary of his career, “That’s What Our Life Is”.
