Ed McCurdy (* 11. Januar 1919 in Willow Hill, Pennsylvania; † 23. März 2000 in Halifax, Nova Scotia) war ein kanadischer Folksänger, Songwriter und TV-Entertainer. Sein Lied Last night I had the strangest dream aus dem Jahr 1950 wurde später zu einer Hymne des Pazifismus und begründete eine Tradition neuer Antikriegslieder der Gegenkultur in den USA, die sich von den traditionelleren Protestliedern unterschieden.[1]
