Greg Brown: Midwestern Folk Staple

Jan 31, 2014

Critic Josh Kun once called singer-songwriter Greg Brown, "A Midwestern existentialist hobo with a quick-draw heart, a bloodied heart, and bourbon on his breath." If there's one thing Kun left out, it's Brown's growling tones, which have gotten deeper and more soulful after nearly 50 years of performing.

Singer-songwriter Greg Brown joins Steve Kraske to talk about his long career.

On Friday'sĀ Up to Date, we sit down with musician Greg Brown and discuss his long career and continued success as a Midwestern folk staple.
