This week, Greg Brown. At 18, Iowa native Greg Brown hit the road as a professional musician. After 15 years he had a pair of self-produced albums and a loyal group of fans in the mid-west but greater success eluded him. Then, within a space of 2 years, he signed with fledgling Red House Records as their first artist, produced a pair of critically acclaimed CDs and got a regular gig on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion.

Today, Greg is a legendary performing songwriter with over 2 dozen recordings and a world-wide fan base. We'll feature a wide range of his music as well as recordings by his talented daughter, Pieta Brown.

Hosted by John Macdonell, Acoustic Interlude is a program of progressive folk and acoustic music. Genres include Americana, bluegrass and traditional but the emphasis is on contemporary artists from a wide variety of musical backgrounds.

Each week the best new releases are featured along with interview and performance sessions from our Studio-A. Past sessions have included Rodney Crowell, Amy Ray, Peter Mulvey, Sam Bush, Jeff Black, Mary Gauthier, and many others. Visit our You Tube Channel.
