John John Brown at Club Sandwich August 24th
Thursday 7pm - 9pm | 12 Main St, Center Sandwich, NH
We welcome John John Brown to John Davidson's venue in beautiful Sandwich, NH. A true listening room experience in a converted barn, hosted by John.
[This show will use our multimedia screen in a very unique and beautiful way!]
Kerrville New Folk winner John John Brown is bringing giant comics, iconic photographs, and moving panoramas to the stage. Titled Songs, Stories, & Art- Lessons from Strangers, this original project weaves together storytelling songs and the visual arts in a live performance. Set outside of Grand Central Station in New York City, Brown takes the listener inside the unique lives of 14 characters, while strumming his guitar and singing beside a projected graphic story. Unfolding is an imaginative and colorful world revealing the idea that all people, strangers alike, have a story we can learn from.
“So well written that every song could be a short story, a treat for lovers of narrative-driven tales.” -Americana UK
The protagonists come from all walks of life; from an aging Vietnam Vet, to a trumpet playing orphan, a married couple debating evolution, to a young man with mental illness wandering the aisles of Walmart. With his guitar in hand, Brown may have found a new way to sing a song. Above all, he stays rooted in the soil of a good story. https://johnjohnbrown.com/
