The Mountain Spirit Coffeehouse welcomes back an Asheville favorite, Chuck Brodsky, on January 5 at 7PM.
Chuck has never failed to delight the crowd at Mountain Spirit. Chuck Brodsky is a storyteller, a songwriter, a troubadour, a modern day bard. His acoustic guitar and voice draw you in with genuine, down-to-earth warmth and quirky, rootsy, finely crafted songs. Chuck’s wit and irony, set to haunting melodies delivered over syncopated guitar strumming or sweet fingerpicking, tells stories of oddball and underdog characters.
His songs celebrate the goodness in people, the eccentric, the holy, the profound, the courageous, the inspiring, the beautiful. They poke fun at what needs poking, and sometimes challenge what needs to be challenged. They’re sworn to tell the truth. His ten albums have received world wide critical acclaim, including Chuck’s recent release “The Baseball Ballads 2” (2013). Early CDs were produced in Atlanta by Sugarland’s Kristian Bush. His most recent four studio recordings were produced in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, by J.P. Cormier.
Chuck currently lives in Asheville but has been busy touring in Canada, across the US and to Ireland where he leads a music tour every year.
