Admission to this hour-long CD release includes a reception after the show and a free copy of the new CD! Ed Sweeney honors people and their histories by presenting music that entertains and educates. Through his musical expertise, breadth of knowledge, and wonderful sense of humor, he helps listeners understand the motivations, stories, and culture that have made us who and what we are today. Ed performs a wide-ranging repertoire on 6- and 12-string guitar, 5-string banjo, and fretless banjo. "A Sunday Drive," which will be released today, is Ed’s ninth recording and takes inspiration from long car rides listening to a eclectic variety of music over the car radio and meeting people as you travel away from home. He will be joined by Cathy Clasper-Torch, one of the best known multi-instrumentalists and singers in Southern New England. Cathy is adept with various musical styles including classical, jazz and folk and she is in constant demand to perform or record on fiddle, cello, piano and ehru. Ed’s music reaches a truly diverse audience through NPR or on the hundreds of radio stations and on-line networks around the world. His music is included in documentaries by Ken Burns and Christian De Renzendes, as well as television soundtracks and is currently played in Disneyland, Disneyland Paris & Disneyland Tokyo. Sweeney also teaches 5-string banjo and guitar at Blackstone River Theatre while Cathy has taught group fiddle classes at Blackstone River Theatre for 14 years.
