Ed’s latest CD "There and Gone"
order your copy today!

There and Gone

"There and Gone" is a mix of unique and original compositions and compelling covers. Mostly solo guitar with occasional overdubs of bass, Weissenborn guitar, lap steel and additional acoustic guitars. Covers include "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," "Imagine/Across The Universe," "Killing the Blues" and a fresh take on Leo Kottke's lovely "Three Quarter North."

For the Weissenborn fans who've asked; yes, there are a couple of Weissenborn tunes on there and they were a lot of fun to do. "Rye Whiskey Mash" has about the loosest timing I've ever heard, and I got to use a bunch of old and new Weissenborns on it. A drunken chorus of Weissenborns, what's better than that? –Ed

" ...some of the richest steel-string sounds you’ve ever heard."
