Singer, Story Teller and Folk Theologian
Ed is known for his collections of moving music, quirky humor, and insightful monologues. He has earned areputation as one of America's cutting edge religious communicators, a folk-theologian if you will, offering his teaching in story and song.

Ed began his career in the early 60's, singing in folk groups while in high school and college. During a professional career of 8000-plus solo appearances over the last 40 years, he has worked in every region of the United States and toured in Europe. Ed has recorded 23 albums, among them a 4-CD collection of in-concert performances of his stories and songs, "The Grateful Ed Live" released in 2008. His latest CD's are "A World Of Good" and his second greatest hits collection, "The Best Of Ed/Volume 2".
Ed's wife, Kathleen, is a United Methodist minister. They make their home in the country, near Rock Hill, South Carolina and on Manasota Key in Englewood, Florida.
