Greg Brown on Half Time at the Apocalypse, Thursday 9/25

Tune in Thursday evening around 9pm for an intimate interview between Halftime Jeff and Greg Brown.

Jeff Rogers- "I first met him about 18 years ago when Rainer was opening for him. He was watching Rainer from the back of the auditorium and I went up and requested a song..." hear more on Half Time at the Apocalypse.

Greg Brown's smoky baritone conjures images of family, home and the natural world, against a backdrop of Gospel, Blues, Country and Jazz. One of the most awarded artists in Folk music, The New Yorker wrote, "Brown's music is fixed in American mythology", and Rolling Stone called him, "A wickedly sharp observer of the human condition."

His conversational poetics and blues-inflected instrumentation bring to mind Woody Guthrie, Muddy Waters, and Leadbelly. Flat out political folk songs carry on the tradition of Pete Seeger, while his growling vocals seem to channel Howling Wolf.

Now hear this sly Folk master with his longtime accompanist Bo Ramsey at the intimate Berger Center in a KXCI Presents show.
