Alan Lee Edwards has been a songwriter for over 30 years, and became the main singer, guitarist, and songwriter for the band Lou Ford. He has been called a “Pioneer” of the Americana / Alt-Country genre. Punks, Alt-Country fans, and glam rockers alike agreed there is an honesty there, an authenticity not built on outward style but inner substance. His songs speak mostly of the ebb and flow of personal relationships, and of the existence most of us south of “middle-class” immediately recognized as our own. Edwards’ biggest influences (Beach Boys, Big Star, Nick Lowe) is never far from the surface.
After Edwards’ post-Ford band The Loudermilks folded, Alan did as he had famously promised in song years before and took his things and moved up to the mountains. Edwards has revisited his burgeoning back catalog of songs and become something of a road warrior. It is music that is personal without being personal-specific — call it “universal personal.” It is a sort of composting of shared experience, something that is rather impossible to fake without a huge helping of empathy and a great set of ears. It is music that is direct, and which can occasionally make you uncomfortable, but later console you like that old friend you rarely get to see. A. Lee Edwards’ songs and fingerstyle guitar, accompanied by Matt Royal on Bass, as a duo with harmonies that recall classic Byrds, Flying Burrito Bros and Buck Owens/ Don Rich.
“Alan isn’t just versed and influenced by the Americana and alt-country byproducts, but the old school country and rock origination points of the music, and you can hear this in his sound that is intelligent, lively, and multi-dimensional.” – Saving Country Music
Throughout the years Alan has shared the bill with the likes of: the Avett Brothers, Whiskeytown, John Doe, Tift Merrit, Old 97s, Drive By Truckers, Syd Straw, Freedy Johnston, Todd Snyder, Buddy and Julie Miller, The Blasters, Dave Alvin, Sierra Ferrell, Chris Smither and Jimbo Mathus, to name a few.

ACMA member and singer/songwriter, Bruce Gallant opens this show. In his own words Gallant states: “Writing and music are like breathing to me, they are what I need to get me through my life.” The ACMA is fortunate to have this kind of talent in our own back yard. Bruce is also a huge part of the success of the ACMA’s Sunday Singer/Songwriter Circle. Thank you for all you do, Bruce!
