More than just plain folk: Greg Brown

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Greg Brown, who plays Santa Fe on Fri­day, Feb. 26, isn’t just a vet­eran folk mu­si­cian. He is a renowned com­poser who tells mu­si­cal sto­ries that can be wild, funny, and deeply per­cep­tive. Iowa-born Brown grew up in var­i­ous towns in the Mid­west, the son of an elec­tri­cian/ preacher father and a teacher/mu­si­cian mother. Af­ter high school, he played gui­tar and sang at a folk club in New York, but he re­turned to Iowa to forge his ca­reer and has recorded about two dozen al­bums since his 1980 solo de­but, 44 & 66. His con­cert be­gins at 7:30 p.m. in St. Fran­cis Au­di­to­rium (New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art, 107 W. Palace Ave.; 505- 476-5072). Tick­ets are $29-$59 at www. brownpapertick­ets.com.
