Jonathan Edwards teams up with Stockwell Brothers, Lisa McCormick at Next Stage

PUTNEY — Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present folk/rock icon Jonathan Edwards, singer/songwriter Lisa McCormick, and contemporary folk trio The Stockwell Brothers at Next Stage on Sunday, Nov. 16, at 7:30 p.m.

Southern Vermont-based Lisa and brothers Bruce, Barry, and Alan already have toured with Edwards and again are adding their voices, guitars, banjo, mandolin, and bass to “Sunshine,” Shanty,” and a handful of his other hits.

Edwards has released 15 albums since 1971, collaboraing with the likes of Emmylou Harris, Cheryl Wheeler, and The Seldom Scene. He's also launched his own record label and shared the stage with everyone from The Allman Brothers Band and B.B. King to Jesse Colin Young and Don McLean.

Edwards is perhaps best known for his 1971 anthem “Sunshine,” a fierce proclamation of protest and independence that resonated with thousands of young men and women, made its way to the top five on the national charts, and earned him a gold record.

Lisa McCormick is a mainstay of the indie underground, where her strong, clear voice and smart, sexy lyrics have earned her a loyal following. Her signature sultry vocals and sophisticated acoustic guitar arrangements are spiced with exotic World Music flavors including Latin, Middle Eastern, reggae, and tango.

The Stockwell Brothers have performed alongside such artists as Bill Monroe, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Asleep at the Wheel, recorded with Mike Auldridge and Phil Rosenthal of the bluegrass supergroup The Seldom Scene, and toured throughout the United States and in Canada and Europe.
