PIETA BROWN

Severson Dells Nature Center 8786 Montague Road Rockford IL 61102
$20
1-815-335-2915
What a perfect way to spend Valentine's Day listening to the sweet tunes of Pieta Brown. Pieta has a new cd out called, Paradise Outlaw. Recorded at Bon Iver mastermind Justin Vernon's April Base studio in Wisconsin, with a supporting cast that includes Vernon, Amos Lee and Brown's father, legendary troubadour Greg Brown, Paradise Outlaw boasts some of Pieta's most emotionally resonant compositions, and some of her most expressive performances, to date. "We recorded live, in just a few days, with everyone in one big room, and what you hear on the recording is the way the music went down as it was recorded," she continues. "Growing up around a lot of musicians and artists, I have always felt most at home among them. And that's how I made this recording—surrounded by friends in an underground midwestern goldmine."
Doors open at 2:00 p.m., Show starts at 3:00 p.m.
