Jay Brown’s Mountain Made Music Welcomes Chuck Brodsky Monday, June 19 - 7 p.m. - Jay Brown and Chuck Brodsky. Singer-Songwriter. $10. Multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Jay Brown is the the sole member of the Jay Brown One-Man Band, but he also thrives on getting together with his fellow local singer-songwriters. Every month Brown’s Mountain Made Music series pairs Brown with other distinctive regional voices on the White Horse Black Mountain stage for solo and collaborative sets. The next installment, slated for Monday, June 19 at 7 p.m. welcomes critically acclaimed modern bard Chuck Brodsky to the series. Acoustic Guitar magazine observes that Philadelphia native Chuck Brodsky can “sing, fingerpick and strum with the best of ‘em… a storyteller, and a riveting one at that… and underlying tone of warmth and compassion runs through his carefully observed narratives.” With just his voice and guitar he draws listeners in with his quirky, finely crafter songs. His lyrics often center on oddball and underdog characters, but celebrate the the goodness of people in all their imperfection. Using wit and irony paired with haunting melodies, Brodsky’s songs never fail to tell truths that need telling. No less a personage than Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show calls Jay Brown “the most authentic songster to come out of the Carolina High Country since a man named Doc Watson”. A singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, he has hundreds of classic songs in his repertoire as well as a hundred-odd originals. Brown’s musical tastes and talents are wide ranging, as evidenced by his membership in the Boone-based roots band The Lazybirds, Indian-flavored world music group Shantavaani and early-jazz cats Swing Guitars. In 2007 he founded The Jay Brown One-Man-Band, in which he deftly handles vocals, guitar, harmonica, percussion and piano. His latest project, The Appalucians, delves into mountain roots music.
