More About

Armed with blinding guitar skills, bone-dry wit, and a deep baritone voice, Austin-based country institution Junior Brown has been entertaining audiences across the globe for decades. He got his start in the '60s, playing guitar and lap steel in New Mexico roadhouses as a teen. But it wasn't until after Brown invented his hybrid double-necked instrument, the "guit-steel," that he found his unique sound. Switching seamlessly between standard six-string and finger-picking lap-steel, Brown deftly mixes jaw-dropping fretwork with heartfelt country balladry and deadpan delivery on such comic gems as "Venom Wearin' Denim" and "My Wife Thinks You're Dead." Brown brings his longtime band, featuring the lovely Tanya Rae Brown on rhythm guitar, to San Francisco this weekend, offering up songs from his latest effort, Volume 10.
