Come enjoy an evening of music and stories with Jed Marum, performing Celtic and American music, with strong Bluegrass roots! Living Traditions Presentations is excited to present this unique performance in one of Flagstaff’s historical gems, the Riordan Mansion Visitor Center. LTP is presenting Jed Marum in collaboration with Riordan Mansion and  sponsored in part by Northern Arizona Celtic Heritage Society.

Jed Marum albums play regularly on Folk/Bluegrass and Celtic radio programs around the world. His music is also distributed widely on all the major MP3 services. Throughout the US each year Jed plays over 150 shows at festival, club and concert venues.

Reflected in his song writing and song selection is a keen interest in history and the passing of culture from generation to generation. Jed performs traditional songs and contemporary songs in musical style that is both Celtic and American, with strong Bluegrass roots.

Jed Marum will be performing in the intimate setting of the Riordan Mansion Visitor Center. Space is limited, so purchase your tickets in advance! A cash bar will be available with proceeds benefiting Riordan Mansion, LTP, and Northern Arizona Celtic Heritage Society.

Jed, in Jed’s words: “I grew up near Boston. My wife and I married at 18 and we have raised 3 sons.

As a young man I worked Construction and Excavation during the day – and played music in bars and coffeehouses at night until I was 32. I studied electronics and computers to get a better day job. I dropped music performance and worked Information Technology in the airline and then the telecom world until I was 48.

My wife and I packed up our three boys and moved from Massachusetts to Texas in 1986. When I bought a nice guitar and banjo in 1996 and 1997, I rekindled my love of music. I quit the day job in January of 2000 and I have earned my living at performing music ever since.

I play Celtic or Folk/Bluegrass festival and concert venues around the US. I have done a little bit of TV and lot of radio.

I have licensed songs and recordings to film and television that have played to international markets on PBS, History Channel and the Playboy Channel and in theaters. I have published and released 12 albums on Boston Road Records.”
