The Alison Brown Quartet is Coming to Pruis Hall!

Contributed by: Kristi Chambers
Published: Tuesday, 19 September 2017 2:00 PM
GRAMMY Award-winning musician, Alison Brown not only plays the three-finger banjo, but successfully merges the traditional sounds of folk, jazz, Celtic and Latin. Today, she is acclaimed to be one of the finest progressive banjo players. She's made modifications to her signature model Prucha 5-string, muting the usual harsher overtones and extraneous noises, emphasizing the sweetness and melodicism.
