Bowling Green’s own John Edmonds began his professional gospel career at the age of fifteen, and has been going strong ever since. His repertoire includes tunes drawn from the golden age of gospel and popular songs given an inspirational twist, as well as his own compositions.
The John Edmonds Gospel Truth has toured throughout the US and five continents, delighting audiences with their vigorous arrangements, exciting vocals, and John’s own remarkable keyboard stylings. John has shared the stage with such greats as Clara Ward, James Cleveland, Ricky Skaggs, Della Reese, and Dottie Rambo, among many others. He has released 14 recording projects, most recently the CD A Word from Heaven, produced by Zachary Tichenor.
He now makes his home in Bowling Green, where he continues to pursue an active agenda of musical and literary projects, teaching, and work with Mt. Zion Baptist Church. He is a familiar face at SKY Market.
He will be joined tomorrow by his student, Erika Brady, professor in WKU’s Department of Folk Studies and Anthropology and senior producer/host of Barren River Breakdown on WKU Public Radio.
