Born in 1952 in Cottonwood, Arizona, Junior Brown showed an affinity for music at an early age. Discovering a guitar in his grandparent’s attic at age seven, he spent the next several years woodshedding with records and the radio. Junior was also able to tap into music he couldn’t hear at home which older, college aged kids were listening to. This was possible as a result of his father’s employment at a nearby campus in 1958. Armed with this broad spectrum of source material, he had developed some formidable chops by the end of his teen years.

Brown’s passion for Country and Western music had intensified by the late 1960’s. With many prominent figures as his inspiration, he spent his nights further sharpening his musical skills in small clubs across the southwest. “I played more nights in honkytonks during the 70’s and 80’s than most musicians will see in a lifetime…I did so many years of that, night after night, four sets a night, 15 minute breaks; I mean after that, you gotta get good or get out.” Brown still prefers to refer to his favorite music as “Country and Western” as it was called when he began his career. More recently, however, with the exception of Classical, Modern Jazz and Rap, he has shown himself to be equally adept at virtually all styles of American music, leading many to dub him America’s most versatile musician. A listen to his catalog of recordings reveals a virtuosity in Country, Western Swing, Hawaiian, Rock and Roll, (Hard Rock, Surf, etc.), Blues, Trad. Jazz, (Swing), Pop, Bluegrass, and even Mariachi.

For Fans Of: Country Music, Johnny Cash, Dwight Yoakam, Radney Foster

Kory Quinn
Portland songwriter Kory Quinn, a DIY contemporary hobo intellectual, has a refreshingly homespun take on Americana, a very welcome sigh of relief in today’s contemporary market. After spending over 270 Self-Booked Dates on the road, spanning 7 countries, on three Continents and another 90 plus shows already booked for early next year throughout the Good Ol’ USA, Quinn still finds time to write and record new material. The just released second full-length album, At The End of The Bar, boils down red-dirt basics in a freewheeling roadhouse stew. Quinn’s songwriting is adroit and surefooted, offering sturdily constructed country, folk, and Cajun-tinged songs for his ensemble to really sink their fangs into on this instant jukebox classic. The songs are short and sweet but packed with clever lines, sentimental harmonies and twangy fills. All that makes them the kind of songs that hang around your brain like honky-tonk regulars. Between road-worn self-penned material, old-time drinking songs and heart rending country standards The Mighty Quinn is the next one to watch out for.

    I’d love to win tix to see Junior Brown because I saw him 20 years ago right as he was first getting national attention. Would like to see how he’s held up. And my wife will like him!

    OMG! OMG! OMG!

    I saw Junior Brown a few years ago. I didn’t really want to go because I do not like country music – especially modern country music. But I do love slide-blues. Anyway, his music is like a cross between the two – more like Country-Billy. He is amazing on the slide. And he is very funny, very personable, and really loves performing. It was a great show!

    I’d LOVE to win tickets and see him again! And that will give me a great excuse not to go to my boyfriend’s parents house for dinner that night! That would be a double bonus!)

    We danced to his “My Wife Thinks You’re Dead” at Pioneer Square when White Bird presented Le Grand Continental! I would KILL to see him live!

    I have long been a Junior Brown fan, but have never had the opportunity to see him. I would really appreciate it if I won these tickets. Music is my whole life, and the Aladfin Theater is my favorite Pirtlabd venue .

    After way too many years with a guy who couldn’t stand good music like this, Junior Brown would make for an awesome second date with a smarter new guy! Gimme some sweet ole honkytonk…

    Can I get these tickets? It would be the perfect date night for the Hubs and me. We are sending out youngest off to the Dominican Republic that afternoon, and it will be time to get our par-tay on! Show some love for the old folks – we need to remember how to have fun without the kidlets hanging on!
