Ed Croft, a Peekskill native, started his career playing in the New York City subways with famed blues musician Carolina Slim. From there, he played locally with his rockabilly band, The Moonshiners and went on to pursue a BA in Music Education from SUNY Fredonia. There he performed and studied with local legends such as Tom Gestwicki, John Bacon, Bruce Johnstone, in an orchestra concert with Yo Yo Ma, and more. He later studied under Jeff Halsey, David Bixler, and Chris Buzzeli.
Ed began touring with celtic rock band The Town Pants, followed by the bluegrass band The Jakobs Ferry Stragglers. He also performed with Mike Stern, Dave Samuels (of Spyro Gyro fame), Gary Smulyan, Tim Hagans, Jimmy Heath, and Conrad Herwig.
Now living in Buffalo, Ed has performed/shared the stage with Buffalo jazz greats Darryl Washington, Greg Millar, Rey Scott, Bobby Jones, and Buffalo Music Hall of Famers Doug Yeomans, Mary Ramsey, Joe Parisi, and Joe Rozler.
