Greg Brown‘s mother played electric guitar, his grandfather played banjo, and his father was a Holy Roller preacher n the Hacklebarney section of Iowa, where the Gospel and music are a way of life.

Brown’s first professional singing job came at age 18 in New York City, running hootenannies (folksinger get togethers) at the legendary Gerdes Folk City.

Brown’s songwriting has been lauded by many and his songs have been performed by Willie Nelson, Carlos Santana, Michael Johnson, Shawn Colvin, and Mary Chapin Carpenter.

He has also recorded more than a dozen albums and earned two Grammy nominations.

 

 

 

Karen Savoca

Karen Savoca pours her heart into a song the way a great actor throws herself into a role.

Her songs draw you into a world of humor and compassion, shared with grace and ease, as though you’ve been invited to her table for supper.

At the age of 8, Karen asked for piano lessons and at thirteen began composing on a guitar she bought with saved birthday money.

Karen attended Syracuse University, where she studied music and elementary education.

“If [Karen Savoca] were a Native American, her name would be Sings Like Two Birds.” – Greg Brown
