Buck T.Edwards Has A Story To Be Told Here
Raised in a farming family in rural Maine, Buck learned the guitar from his Canadian uncles who were prominent musicians in the Maritimes. (In a strange coincidence he also he ran on the cross country team in High School with noted folk singer Ellis Paul.) After a stint in the military which exposed him to country and roots music in Texas and Mississippi, Buck moved back home to attend college and sang or played lead guitar and bass in such varied groups as The Hummingbirds, Treehouse, Peter Gunn, Gloria Jean and the Easyriders, WOW and Mammoth before settling on Country as his main focus. With his knack for writing catchy melodies, Bucks past bands have been selected for such honors as: Best Pop Act in the City, Jim Beam artist development grant recipient and performances at national music conferences and label showcases. Recently Buck was selected for the Colgate Country Showdown by WKLB in Boston, the Whaling City Festival in New Bedford, MA. , and Greenfest in Boston, MA.
Buck has performed over 500 gigs at last count and has appeared onstage in over 20 states. Always a prolific songwriter, Buck continues to perfect his craft with regular sojourns to Nashville to learn and write at NSAI’s advanced songwriter camp with seasoned pro’s such as John Ims and James Dean Hicks. He has also performed on stages around musictown such as the Blue Bird Cafe where his material was very well received and co-written with the Blue Birds booking agent and number one songwriter Barbara Cloyd.
