Artists You Should Know: Pieta Brown (ticket giveaway!)

Pieta Brown

It’s hard for any artist to step out of the shadows of their past.  Just ask Pieta Brown, daughter of folk icon Greg Brown.  Her challenge was not so much to dissociate herself from her father’s musical success entirely, but to transcend it–build a legacy of her own from the sturdy foundations of family tradition.  She has risen to the challenge with grace, intelligence and humility, qualities that shine through during her gorgeous performances.  Madison music fans will be treated to her brand of intimate, reflective, and fearless folk-country sound when she takes the stage at the High Noon Saloon this Friday.  Read on to find out more about this very special performer, and enter to win a pair of tickets to the show!
