Bio by Skip Parsons 
During his school years, Ed played with some ethnic, country, and rock & roll groups, and appeared in several Catskill Mountain Resorts including Hunter Mountain. After two years in the army, he formed his own country group where he continued music for six years. While partially retired from the music scene in the late 60’s to raise his family and work as a crime lab tech, he began to seek some Dixieland gigs in the 80’s in the Albany area. In 1991, he joined the Skip Parsons’ Riverboat Jazz Band and has appeared with the RBJ in concert with Doc Cheatham, Spanky Davis, Carl Lunsford, Spiegel Wilcox and many others. Ed has produced, arranged and recorded his two CD’s “By The Sea” and “Old Cape Cod” which showcase the banjo as a versatile instrument used to perform various styles of music. He has attended several of the New England Banjofests where he has performed with notable banjoists Kurt Abell, Steve Caddick and Dave Frey. Ed has also worked with Dave Huxtable, Roswell Rudd & Bobby Day (pianist from the Fred Waring band). He also enjoys an occasional banjo “blast” and has attended parties of that style, which included the fine talents of Jimmy Mazzy. Ed also has an interest in playing Armenian music. He does this quite well & often to keep his “pick active”.
