Jed Marum was an established and a favored performer at Celtic and Folk/Bluegrass festival and concert rooms throughout the US. In 2005 he performed over 150 shows, bringing his music and songs to audiences in over fifty cities – in a dozen states.
All four of Jed’s albums receive international radio airplay regularly – on Celtic and Bluegrass radio shows – on web cast programs – and on MP3 services all around the world. His album, MILES FROM HOME was among the Most Played Albums of the Folk/Bluegrass DJ Playlist for four months in 2005. Jed was known as a gifted singer and an exceptional guitar player.
He was an accomplished banjo and harmonica player as well and brought fascinating sounds to the stage with unusual hybrid instruments like the hi-strung backpacker and the banjola. Widely respected as a songwriter, Jed had licensed several of his original songs for use by other recording artists, movies and television.
Jed headlined at several of the nation’s big festivals, including The North Texas Irish Festival, Chicago Gaelic Park Irish Festival, Mississippi Scottish Games, Tucson Folk Festival, Texas Scottish Festival and many regional festivals around the US. Judith Gennet of Green Man Reviews said of Jed’s music, “You can hear the Folk in the Celtic and the Celtic in the Folk!”
