Allison Brown plays the Key City Theatre
Alison Brown achieved an international reputation as a banjo player by pushing the instrument out of its familiar Appalachian settings and into new musical territory.
On her newest record, however, Brown brings her banjo back to its bluegrass roots and to her own musical beginnings.
Brown has achieved success in many areas over the years. She assembled the material for her solo debut, Simple Pleasures, earning her a Grammy nomination. Around the same time, Brown joined Krauss for a successful three-year run that included a place on Krauss’ Grammy-winning “I’ve Got That Old Feeling” album, as well as bluegrass music’s highest accolade for an instrumentalist: the International Bluegrass Music Association Banjo Player of the Year in 1991.
Opening for the Alison Brown Quartet is Creston musician Elena Yeung, born and raised in the farming community of Carberry, Manitoba by immigrant parents from Hong Kong.
Alison Brown Quartet with opener Elena Yeung will be performing at the Key City Theatre on November 18th at 7:30. Tickets are available at Key City Theatre Box Office or by calling 250-426-7006.
