"Ed Roman is a man of many talents, and most of them have some relationship to where he lives right on the border of Melanchthon and Shelburne. As an award-winning singer/songwriter, international performer, multi-instrumentalist, vegetable farmer and promoter of the Davis Dyslexia Association, Roman brings it all back to his physical location." - Headwaters Inspired Project website

"Where I live is so important to me. I need to be close to the community. Here, I can talk to the mayor if I want. I'm in touch with the earth and nature around me," said Roman. "It inspires my writing and playing. I also like to grow my own food. It's simple, self-sustaining and empowering. This helps define who I am."

The Headwaters region boasts a diverse and very active arts and culture sector, and a vigorous approach to heritage preservation. The arts and culture sector has been identified by Dufferin County, the Town of Caledon and the Town of Erin as an important facet of economic prosperity in Headwaters and a direct contributor to community well-being. To further understand the impact of arts and culture on our community, Dufferin County, the Town of Caledon and the Town of Erin funded a project to develop an arts and culture framework in Headwaters.
