"Cowboy music gave me my life. I've always enjoyed playing cowboy ballads — the folk music of our past. It's been rewarding to know that I've helped to preserve the music and the important truths of those people who lived close to the land. The key to the future is the past. That's kinda what we're here for. We need these values now more than any other time." -- Don Edwards
Anyone who has had the pleasure to meet Don Edwards is likely from then on to follow any mention of his name with "what a nice guy." America's favorite cowboy singer is admired for his generous spirit, his knowledge of cowboy music and history, and of course for his considerable talent as a performer and composer. It is with great pleasure that we welcome him back to The Shedd.
Workshop with Don Edwards at 5 p.m. at The Shedd. Tickets, $25, $20 (with concert ticket), $15 (Shedd Institute students)
