MetadataShow full item record
Jed Marum was born in Massachusetts and until his early-30s spent his days working in construction and excavation and his evenings playing in bars and coffeehouses. For a number of years he dropped music and switched to IT work in both the airline and telecom industries, but at age 48 reversed course, picked up music again, and “I quit the day job in January of 2000 and I have earned my living at performing music ever since.” He performs in Celtic or Folk/Bluegrass festivals (appearing for many years in Arlington at the North Texas Scottish Festival) and concert venues around the US. He has done “a little bit of TV and lot of radio” and has licensed songs and recordings to fi lm and television productions playing to international markets on PBS, cable channels and in theaters. He produced and released nine albums on Boston Road Records and his music is published through Weston Grand Arts in association with ASCAP. Marum’s album Cross Over The River: A Confederate Collection won the Traditional/Folk Album of the Year Award in the JP Folk Awards program in 2009. The album is a collection of true stories from history in song, as retold from the points-of-view of the American and Irish Americans who fought and refl ects a true and South positive image throughout. His latest album is Rejoice!: A Christmas Album, released in November, 2011.
