Brodsky’s guitar and lyrics paint a musical sketch of the drama of our daily lives, shedding a humorous light on our trials and tribulations.
He has a genuine connection to the people of the Georgetown Divide, and has sold out the Grange Hall in his last three concerts here.
He is a master story teller introducing his songs which poke fun at political corruption, road rage, unsung heroes and forgotten but incredible people, odd characters from the game of baseball, migrant fruit pickers, the Goat Man, a clown, and Radio, a developmentally disabled man who was the subject of the 2003 movie “Radio.”
Brodsky has performed concerts of his celebrated baseball story songs at the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and toured extensively throughout the U.S., Canada, and Ireland for 12 years, playing at folk festivals at Tønder in Denmark, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Kerrville, Philadelphia and Strawberry, as well as the Lincoln Center Out of Door series in New York.
He has appeared in concert with Arlo Guthrie, Janis Ian, Pete Seeger, Tim O’Brien, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, John Hartford and many more.
A sampling of his songs can be heard at chuckbrodsky.com. along with cuts off his new CD, “Subtotal Eclipse.”
