Fun, poetic, gritty, and wonderful. Listen for Greg Brown in concert at the Old Settlers Inn. Greg has recorded more than two dozen albums, is the founder of Red House Records and has received several folkie-and-indie type awards. His tunes have been covered by Willie Nelson, Carlos Santana, Ani DiFranco, Shawn Colvin and countless others. Like most singer-songwriters, he’s best when playing live in a small setting. Tune in and hear one of his best performances.

He's been at the Old Settlers Inn many, many times since the series started in the mid-90s. Always an audience-favorite in any configuration.
