SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

American folk music will take the stage at the Englert Theatre, 221 E. Washington St.

Greg Brown, one of the country's most well-known folk musicians, will bring his highly regarded musical talent to Iowa City at 8 p.m. Friday at the Englert.

The musician uses his baritone voice and a tremendous sense of melody to create music that chronicles the everyday insights into life in the essence of classic American folk style.

The Iowa native has recorded 24 studio albums, including his most recent, Freak Flag. Most of the album was crafted in Memphis, Tenn.

Freak Flag was produced by one of Brown's closest friends, Bo Ramsey, another famous local musician.

The album is somewhat a family affair with tunes "borrowed" from wife Iris DeMent and daughter Pieta Brown, who are both members of the Iowa City music scene.
