Brown Bird is a duo from Providence, RI. They are just another foot stomping example of how classic minstrel and folk music in the US continues to re-imagine itself for the eager ears from one side of the Mississippi to the other. Ears, that simply adore focused songwriting and the inherent ease that comes with enjoying it.
