GREG BROWN, with his signature rumbling baritone voice, is widely considered to be one of the foremost living folk musicians of his generation. He has recorded more than two dozen studio albums, received multiple Grammy nominations, and created an astonishingly deep songbook that has been covered by dozens of frontline artists – including Willie Nelson, Carlos Santana, Joan Baez, Ani DiFranco, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and his wife, Iris Dement. Brown’s songs have a distinctively Midwestern feel: straightforward, slow, and bluesy, filled with vivid scenes and memorable characters. His live shows have become legendary for his warmth, humor, insights, spirit, thundering voice, and unpretentious musical vision. In addition to being an accomplished songwriter and musician, Greg Brown was the former musical director for Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion nationally broadcast radio program, where he was a regular musical performer for five years, after which he remained a frequent guest.

“Mr. Brown’s music provides a stark, unself-consciously literary tour of off-road Americana.” — New York Times

“A wickedly sharp observer of the human condition.” — Rolling Stone

$33 ($37); $29 Member ($33); $18 under 19
