Chastity Brown
Friday, November 14, 7:00 p.m.


Throw all the genres and hyphenates together you want to describe her – indie, roots & soul, rock, blues & country – they are all right, and also not enough. Chastity Brown writes songs that are carried deep in the American psyche, the hunger, desperation and confidence that runs through our times. Coming from Tennessee to Minnesota, touring the country, touring Europe, she has spent half her life on the road and with each mile her voice becomes more powerful!. She’s been hailed by NPR, CMT, American Songwriter, The London Times, and Paste Magazine as a songwriter to watch, and has recently shared the stage with Michael Kiwanuka, Mike Doughty, and Leon Russell.

Chastity pulls from a diverse cross-section of talent for her live shows, playing with Robert Mulrennan (guitarist/producer), keyboardist deVon Gray (Brother Ali), bass player Jef Sundquist, and percussionist Greg Schutte (Mickey Hart), resulting in restless, electrifying and enveloping performances. $15. Call 1-815-335-2915.
