Jonathan Edwards, What Was the First Album You Ever Bought?

“It was a calypso album – the Harry Belafonte album with songs like ‘Jamaica Farewell’ and ‘Day-O’ and all that stuff. That was my first LP.

I’ve always had an ear for the popular – the popular side of folk music.”

Jonathan Edwards makes tour stop at the venerable Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs on Sunday (February 21).
