Help us welcome Alan Edwards back to the Parker Ranch to open up our 2023 Concert Season.
"Alan Lee Edwards has been a songwriter for over 30 years, and became the main singer, guitarist, and songwriter for the band Lou Ford. He has been called a "Pioneer" of the Americana / Alt-Country genre. Punks, Alt-Country fans, and glam rockers alike agreed there was an honesty there, an authenticity not built on outward style but inner substance. The songs spoke mostly of the ebb and flow of personal relationships, and of the existence most of us south of "middle-class" immediately recognized as our own. They had critical respect, too, and from some of the best music magazines in the world -- Uncut and Mojo both talked the band up breathlessly, and they shared space on British "best of" compilation CDs with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Richard Thompson and Paul Simon." Timothy Davis / Nashville
"Pretty much anyone who's heard A. Lee Edwards over the past 25 years knows that the former member of the bands Lou Ford and The Loudermilks deserves billing as a poet more so than a songwriter. The man's got a way with words for sure, and per new song "South of Sylva," his writing muscle's far from atrophied. Hopefully, this one's a sign of things to come from one of North Carolina's most gifted songsmiths." - Bobby Moore, Wide Open Country Magazine
