This will be a great evening with a first class performer. See below for more about Ed.

Pot luck supper from 6pm, concert to start around 7.15. Let me know if you are interested in coming to this one.



Ed Trickett has been collecting and performing folk songs for many years. His taste in and approach to presenting folk music was shaped by Frank Proffitt, Larry Older, Bob and Evelyn Beers, George and Gerry Armstrong, and Howie Mitchell. Each combined a love of traditional music with an enthusiasm for spreading it around. Since that time Ed has been collecting and crafting traditional and songs written with an appreciation of traditional music. He has been performing for over 50 years in coffee houses, colleges, and folk music festivals and clubs in the United States, Canada, and the British Isles. Playing 6 and 12 string guitar, hammered dulcimer, and piano, his repertoire ranges from traditional ballads to songs of the sea, labor songs, songs of love and parodies. He has appeared several times on Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion, most recently as part of the Prairie Home Companion Cruise in March, 2015.



His recording began in the 1964 with the Golden Ring (Folk-Legacy #16). Since that time he has recorded four solo albums and nine with his long-time musical colleagues Gordon Bok and Ann Mayo Muir. His most recent recording is Echo on the Evening Tide, released on Azalea City records. In addition to solo and trio recordings, he has also recorded with many other artists, including Don McLean, Rosalie Sorrels, Mark Spoelstra, Sally Rogers, Gordon Bok, and Cathy Barton and Dave Para. His 40 year association with Folk Legacy Records has included accompanying many additional musicians such as Joan Sprung, Sara Grey, Joe Hickerson, Lorre Wyatt, Sandy and Caroline Paton, Helen Schneyer, and Harry Tuft.



His greatest musical disappointment was going to Woodstock with Dave Bromberg and Rosalie Sorrels, getting flown to the site by helicopter, and not getting to play on what admittedly was one of the more minor stages.



Known as a song finder and interpreter, his music has been described in the following ways.

"Ed Trickett dipped into all sorts of interesting corners of folksong and pulled out a fascinating assortment of plums". John Wilson New York Times

"I wish I could sing and play as easy and mellow as Ed Trickett". David Bromberg

"One of the popularizers of the hammered dulcimer". Village Voice

"Ed is a perfect keeper of a song".

Sorry I'll never see this fine performer again unless he plays the middle of Nowhere, Ga. You have some excellent house concerts up there.

He was at a house concert in Massachusetts last Sunday. His voice hasn't lost anything, and he's a very like-able performer with his sense of humor still intact. You won't be disappointed if you get to this concert.

I've gotten emails from a couple of friends checking to see if I can attend. It's unlikely, though I'd dearly love to hear Ed again.

I have a coffeehouse committment the night before in the opposite direction, and already scraped up the cash for a special house concert last week. I have sent the information to 16 or so friends, and will let our fearless organizer and hosts know if I get a reply.

Warm regards to Ed, who won't have a clue who Maeve is. :D

Another one I hate to miss! You people of Maine are lucky to have so many great performers appearing in the area. I love Ed's voice, he sounds like the kind of friend you can always trust to say a comforting word when you're feeling low.
He is also one of those nice people who answer letters. Whe I wrote to him a few years ago that I had met Gordon Bok and Carol Rohl, he replied: "I hope I will meet you too, one day." I thought that was very sweet of him. So sorry, Ed, it won't happen this time.
Those of you who have the opportunity, don't miss this concert!

Ulla
