Greg Brown

Saturday, February 18, 2017, 4:00 AM


Iowa's folk master returns



Description


Greg Brown's mother played electric guitar, his grandfather played banjo, and his father was a Holy Roller preacher in the Hacklebarney section of Iowa. Maybe that last item explains some of his amazing charisma! Greg's first professional singing job came at age 18 in New York City, running hootenannies at the legendary Gerdes Folk City. After a year, Greg moved west to Los Angeles and Las Vegas, where he was a ghostwriter for Buck Ram of the Platters. Over more than four decades on the road, Greg has developed into the essential Midwestern songwriter, with a deep feeling for what makes people and communities hang together. He's a compelling performer, aware that in folk music less is usually more and that the intimate musical detail communicates as well as the grand gesture. It's been a while since we've seen Greg Brown in southeastern Michigan, so this could be a very scarce ticket! Chicago Farmer, the musical name of Illinois songwriter Cody Diekhoff, opens.
