CHASTITY BROWN (Headliner) – Based in Minnesota, but with roots in Tennessee, Chastity Brown grew up surrounded by country and soul music. Melding folk, roots, and soul with topical lyrics, weaving together a poet’s lyrical ear and a soul-laid-bare quality, her music seems especially timely. Brown has been featured extensively on MPR’s The Current, and her most recent release, Silhouette of Sirens, was chosen as an NPR “First Listen”.
