ed kilbourne


This popular artist is known for his collections of moving music, quirky humor, and insightful monologues. In addition to his concert appearances, Ed has earned a reputation as one of America's cutting edge religious communicators, a folk-theologian if you will, offering his teaching in story and song as a guest in churches across the United States. He combines acoustic guitar, singing and commentary with a storytelling style often compared to that of Garrison Keillor, the radio humorist from 'Lake Wobegon'.
 
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. She is the director the Master Of Arts In Practical Theology degree program on the Charlotte campus of Pfeiffer University in North Carolina. She also serves as the coordinator of the Center For Deacon Education, a partnership with Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC. Ed and Kathleen make their home in Englewood, Florida on Manasota Key.
