Ed Kilbourne

Join us as we welcome singer, storyteller, and folk-theologian, Ed Kilbourne. This popular artist is known for his unique collections of moving music, quirky humor, and insightful monologues.

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 deacon. She recently retired as the director the Master Of Arts In Practical Theology degree program for Pfeiffer University in North Carolina. She also served as the coordinator of the Center For Deacon Education, a Pfeiffer partnership with Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, DC. Ed and Kathleen make their home in Englewood, Florida on Manasota Key.

We will be following current CDC guidelines and provide ample social distancing. Updates and more information on the event can be found at Holston.org.
