'Sunshine' singer Jonathan Edwards to play Fogartyville in Sarasota

January 31, 2013 

Jonathan Edwards became a pop star briefly in the early 1970s with his country-rock ditty "Sunshine," which can be heard in the hilarious Will Ferrell movie "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy."

Although the singer-songwriter would never return to the pop charts, Edwards did have a handful of singles -- "It's a Natural Thing," "Look What We made (When We Made Love)" and "We Need to Be Locked Away" -- garner enough airplay in the late 1980s to appear on Billboard's Country Singles chart.

Edwards' daughter Grace will open the show Friday in Sarasota.

Details: 8 p.m. Feb. 1, Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center, 525 Kumquat Court, Sarasota. Tickets: $20 in advance; $25 at the door. Information: 941-894-6469 or www.sarasotapeacenter.org.
