Greg Brown 

Saturday, January 21, at Liberty Hall.

There's an air of genuine rapport that comes with each of folk singer-songwriter Greg Brown's songs, a mix of small-town charm and Midwestern sensibilities that renders that artificial division between performer and audience as ridiculous as a speed limit sign on a gravel country road. With a simple, stripped-down approach to his work, Brown continues to paint himself as a modern-day everyman, the sort of guy who would sooner share a beer and tell you a good story than pontificate from a stage. And at age 53, this Iowa native remains as prolific as ever, with his 2004 credits including a live double disc (In The Hills of California) and a studio effort (Honey in the Lion's Head) that prove Brown still has a lot of stories to tell.
