The first in a series of folk concerts at 324 Ballroom hosted by Pickin’ Post radio host Mike Shirkey kicks off on Friday, March 1 with singer songwriter Chuck Brodsky.
Brodsky is best known for his baseball ballads, a collection of songs based on true events, people, and stories from the history and culture of America’s pastime. Several of his songs have been enshrined in the archives of the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
Tickets are $12, and music is set to start at 8 p.m. Jose’s and Bordinos valet parking services will be available to concert attendees.
324 Ballroom is located at 324 W. Dickson Street, just behind Jose’s Mexican Restaurant.
What they’re saying about Chuck
“What tales this singer-songwriter from Philadelphia has…With insight and good humor, he has taken these life experiences and distilled them into old fashioned story songs brimming with wit and compassion.”
—New York Times
“Reflects the good old U.S. of A., warts and all…colorful tales…reminds us there’s a whole wide world outside our doors.”
“Down-to-earth lyrics about ordinary folk sung in an often jocular, and always entertaining style…He may be compassionate, but there’s always at least a modicum of black humour somewhere along the line to keep his audiences on their toes”
—The Jerusalem Post
“One of the finest singer-songwriters in America. There are alot of good ones, but when it comes to the really great ones it boils down to a select few – he’s one of them”
—Larry Groce – Mountain Stage (National Public Radio)
