Chastity Brown & Otis Gibbs play at the Hare & Hounds this Sunday in a special double header that brings together two of the most respected contemporary American roots music artists to Birmingham for one night only.
Now based in Minnesota but with roots in the Deep South, Chastity Brown has the “ability to distill Southern blues and plaintive North Country prairie influences into expansive, alluring folk songs” (The Current). She is a powerful new voice with the ability to warm, comfort and challenge. She’s been hailed by NPR, CMT, American Songwriter, The London Times, and Paste Magazine as a songwriter to watch and has appeared on UK television on Later… with Jools Holland. Her new album ‘Silhouette Of Sirens’ is receiving glowing reviews across the board & she’ll be supporting Ani DiFranco in the UK later this month.
Otis Gibbs is a songwriter, storyteller, painter, photographer and planter of 7,176 trees. He once wrestled a bear, and lost. He has been described as “The best unknown songwriter in music today.” If you ask him, he’ll simply say he’s a Folk Singer. A modern day Woody Guthrie, his songs based in people experience and their struggles. Strong in socialist beliefs – some truths you may not like, he cares not: you are going to hear ’em anyway! Put Gibbs in the company of Bob Dylan, The Clash, and Chuck Berry.
