Event

The Brown Brothers in concert * Susquehanna Folk (SFMS)
Workshops and a concert with two fine old-time players, bringing back the days before radio.

Paul Brown has played old time music since he was a boy. His repertoire, which centers on the highlands of North Carolina and Virginia, comes directly from old-time players of the 1920s and 30s. He studied banjo intensively with the late Tommy Jarrell of North Carolina. Paul has recorded with many outstanding old-time musicians, including a duo album with Mike Seeger (on Rounder), Way Down in North Carolina. Paul has recently released a solo album, Red Clay Country, which is featured on his website. Outside of music, Paul is a newscaster and journalist for National Public Radio.

Matt Brown is an innovative fiddler, an intricate banjo player, a propulsive guitar player, and a moving singer. His music ranges from sprightly square dance tunes to haunting banjo pieces, to songs from the blues to traditional ballads. Many of his influences come from commercial recordings of the 1920's and 1930's. The rest come from field recordings made by collectors such as Alan Lomax, John Cohen and Mike Seeger, or from friendships with older musicians.
