Folk musician Andy Brown to perform in Fernie

Folk musician Andy Brown will perform at the Arts Station on Oct. 15. Tickets now on sale.

Andy Brown, a folk artist from New Brunswick, is playing in Fernie on Oct. 15 as part of a national tour. A recent transplant to Alberta, Brown now calls Calgary home, and is excited for the western part of his tour, which is in support of his third album, Seasons.

While Brown has done large national tours like this before, this one has a special leg, which Brown is excited about. “It started on Aug. 25 and it goes right until Oct. 25 in Canada and then literally the next day, I hop on a plane and I’m going over to Europe to start touring on the 27 – pretty much an ongoing tour,” he said.

Brown will be playing 10 shows in Europe, and hopes to spend some time there after the tour is complete to enjoy some of what Europe has to offer.

Thus far, Brown has been happy with the tour and the reception of Seasons. “It has been a really great response, they are all songs that I’m really proud of and I’m hoping that more and more people get to listen to the record and connect with what I’m trying to say,” he said.

Brown admits to being a proud folk artist and focuses on strong lyrics. “Lyrics without compromise. Definitely some love songs and stuff like that, but there is definitely something for everybody,” he said when asked what people could expect at his show. “There are some rockier songs – as rocky as just a guy with his guitar can get. I guess they can just kind of hopefully walk away with some laughs and some feelings and all that good stuff.”

Brown’s performance in Fernie will feature mostly music from his new album, but he does hope to incorporate some older works too.

“If I had my way, I would play every song from all of the three albums, but most of the songs from the new one and some of the songs from the past two.”

Brown will play at the Arts Station on Oct. 15 at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at the Arts Station and at Freshies.
