Subject: Jed Marum: The Soul of a Wanderer
Another Canadian-born of notes is Jed Marum. His newest CD (The Soul of a Wanderer) is a mix of folk, near folk, neo-folk and faux-folk wherein Mr. Marum composes and covers many classics and more than a few that should be standard in the "Folk" play list. I hope that his inclusion of songs by Percy French and Andy Stewart will reintroduce these important singers to the audience of today. Marum's easy listening style is just what those numbers need. His own compositions are well written and artfully presented as are the quartet of traditional pieces that are sung with respectful gusto. This CD is released by Boston Road Records, and they have a web site:
