Start the weekend out with a riveting music performance by Tony Brown and the Faithful and their opening act Swati! Tony Brown is a singer/songwriter with influences ranging from classic soul and blues to the Pixies. Brown references all those disparate styles and moods at one time or another to create something completely original. He tours with his band The Faithful, a gathering of experienced, eclectic musicians hailing from around the globe. Brown’s soulful, powerful voice, along with the acoustic world vibe that his band mates bring, creates a sound that mixes blues, folk, and alternative rock.
Swati trained as a classical musician, uses a twelve-string guitar fitted with eight strings. She employs open tunings and plays through an assortment of effects pedals. She sings and plays in a style that is gripping, percussive, honest, and contains hints of her Indian heritage.
