Greg Brown has little left to conquer in the music world.
He has garnered multiple Grammy nominations, and boasts an astonishingly deep songbook that’s been covered by dozens of artists (including Willie Nelson and Carlos Santana, Iris DeMent, Ani DiFranco, Gillian Welch, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Joan Baez, Victoria Williams, Robert Earl Keen, Shawn Colvin, Richie Havens, and Tim and Mollie O’Brien).
One of American folk music’s most prolific and profound singer/songwriters of the past three decades, Brown has earned respect from his peers and a far-flung, passionately-devoted fan-base. His burnished, intimate baritone and seemingly effortless gift for swinging, organic melody, combine with a humble, unvarnished poetic grace that can imbue even the most mundane, everyday human endeavors and emotions with quiet dignity, startling insight and gently twisted humor.
The storied sonic storyteller will return to the Treehouse Café in Lynwood at 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25 for a special one-night-only 21-and-older show. Tickets ($35-$45 each) are on sale. Visit www.treehousebainbridge.com to purchase.
