Larry Allen Brown brings his Acoustic Earth Orchestra to Stone Church

BRATTLEBORO—Local guitarist Larry Allen Brown and The Acoustic Earth Orchestra will appear in concert at the Stone Church, 210 Main St., on Saturday, Aug. 17, at 7 p.m.

The Acoustic Earth Orchestra, created by Brown, features Bill Martin on acoustic bass, Matthew Thornton on cello, Mark Baker on violin, and Ted Mortimer on guitar.

Brown’s mesmerizing guitar and earthy vocals perfectly capture the original material in the group’s repertoire, featuring all the songs from Brown’s latest CD, Covered Bridges.

Born and raised in Chicago, Brown attended high school with John Prine and has had a long career as lead guitarist for a variety of groups. He has been heavily influenced by Dave Van Ronk, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and Townes Van Zandt.

An alumnus of Berklee College of Music, Brown embarked upon a solo career as a composer and performer on the acoustic guitar in 2000. He performs throughout New England and has taught guitar in Virginia, Alabama, Chicago, and New England for the past 35 years.

Doors open at 6 p.m., and the concert begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $17 in advance, $20 at the door.
