Songwriter Jon Brooks at Bozzini’s Friday night

In only four years, he has been nominated twice for a Canadian Folk Music Award

Jon Brooks

It’s a first for Chilliwack, when Jon Brooks plays Chilliwack Nov. 21.

A songwriter dedicated to uniting folksong tradition with today’s stories, Brooks has an uncanny ability to press his ear to the heart and soul of the times we live in.

He’s been compared to Steve Earle and Bruce Cockburn with his honest, gritty vocal delivery and his straight-shooting political songwriting.

In only four years, he has been nominated twice for a Canadian Folk Music Award “Songwriter of the Year”, been profiled on CBC’s “The National” and took home the US Mountain Stage New Song contest.

John’s latest disc, Delicate Cages, is out to sketch the complicit natures of good and evil, love and fear, and freedom and imprisonment.

Jon Brooks, makes his Chilliwack debut on Friday, November 21 upstairs at Bozzini’s. Doors 8 p.m. show at 9:30. Tickets $15 at Bozzini’s or call 604-792-0744
