North Carolina based singer and songwriter Chuck Brodsky is returning to one of his favorite venues, the Marshall Grange in Garden Valley on Saturday, Jan. 25. The show will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Brodsky is a storyteller, a songwriter, a troubadour and a modern-day bard. His wit and irony, set to haunting melodies delivered over syncopated guitar strumming or sweet fingerpicking, tells stories of oddball and underdog characters.

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 and Radio, a developmentally disabled man who was the subject of a 2003 movie.

Brodsky has a genuine connection to the people of the Georgetown Divide and has sold out the grange hall in his last concerts here.

His 10 albums have received world-wide critical acclaim, including his latest release “The Baseball Ballads 2.” Brodsky’s passion for baseball and its colorful, off-beat cast of characters is evident in two albums devoted entirely to baseball tales with songs about the first white man to play in the Negro Leagues, a pitcher who threw a no-hitter while hallucinating on LSD, a catcher who was also a spy during World War II, a base runner who cost his team the pennant by not touching a base, the Clown Prince of Baseball and Brodsky’s favorite player from childhood getting booed by hometown fans.

Over the past 20 years Brodsky has performed all across the United States, Canada, Ireland, England, Israel, Lithuania, Latvia, Wales and the Shetland Islands of Scotland. He has appeared at the folk festivals at Tønder in Denmark, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Kerrville, Philadelphia, Strawberry, and the Lincoln Center Out of Door series in New York.

He has also performed three times at the National Baseball Hall of Fame where 18 of his celebrated baseball story songs have been enshrined in the hall’s sound recording library.

To hear a sampling of his songs check out chuckbrodsky.com along with cuts off his new CD, “The Baseball Ballads 2.”

Tickets for the concert are $12 in advance, $15 at the door and $10 for Grange members and can be purchased at Horse Feathers Traden in Georgetown, Rose’s Garden Café in Garden Valley, Cherry Records in Auburn, Placerville Natural Food Co-op, online at brownpapertickets.com or by phoning 530-642-8671.

The Marshall Grange is located at 4940 Marshall Road in Garden Valley. Driving directions may be found at marshallgrange.org.
