An incredible double-bill with two critically acclaimed singer-songwriters will come to the South Orange Performing Arts Center on Saturday.
Greg Brown and Steve Forbert will take the SOPAC stage at 8 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are on sale from $40 to $50. Tickets for SOPAC Members cost between $30 and $45.
Greg Brown is a two-time Grammy Award-nominee for Best Traditional Folk Album, and an Association for Independent Music’s award winner for Best Contemporary Folk Album. Widely respected as a songwriter, An Artist’s Tribute to Greg Brown was released featuring some of today’s best female songwriters including Lucinda Williams, Ani DiFranco, Iris Dement, Gillian Welch, and Mary Chapin Carpenter.
Steve Forbert’s lengthy discography has established him as an American icon. His music was pure Americana before that genre was recognized. Fourteen albums on, Forbert’s stamp on American music is akin to the legendary footprints of Warren Zevon, Gene Clark, Gram Parsons and other top American songwriters, and he has often been compared to the likes of Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and Bruce Springsteen.
