Ed Wright is a master guitarist and a brilliant entertainer. His repertoire is extensive, and he plays with dazzling virtuosity. He was also charming with the guests, and played any requests. He received many compliments. Very highly recommended.

Ed is fantastic. He had an earlier performance and still agreed to come play for our event. Even after 5 hours of playing yesterday, he still sounded fresh. He is easy-going, inobtrusive and his music is absolutely beautiful. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for an acoustic guitar player for their event.
