the
Heartland
Greg Brown strums the
everyday pleasures of
middle America
BY D. MARA LOWENSTEIN
GREG Brown's country/folk musical phrasing
rolls as freely as tumbleweed across a western
prairie. His gravelly baritone voice is reminiscent
of: wild-blackberry jam, fresh-brewed coffee, silent
country mornings, sweaty farming days, fresh baked
bread, country-fried dinners, and foot-stompin', beer-
guzzlin', back room blues band nights.
Be forewarned, this article will be inadequate in
describing the passion that I have for Brown's mu-
sic. My favorite musician, Brown is able to touch
the deepest parts of my very being. In an earlier
article I remarked on how I would "happily" bear
Brown's children. Well... Brown is already "married
with children" (excuse the pun). Aaah, my loss...
listeners' gain.
It would be impossible for me to paraphrase the
beauty of Brown's lyrics. The best way to under-
stand the man is to understand his message. The best
way to understand his message is to hear it.
Brown's music deals with everything from the ev-
eryday necessity of a morning cup of coffee ("I will
bring you your good morning coffee/ will you
smile?") to the despair of being broke ("All the
money's gone/ Gut it out or pack it up and move
on/ All the money's gone./...Did you know, how
much I love you/ I'd like to buy you/ The world's
largest bathtub./...We Americans are so easy to
please-/ a jug of wine, a loaf of bread/ and fifty
thousand dollars").
Brown's tracks range from touching tales of his
vegetable-canning, loving, grandma "Ella Mae" to
"Dream On," a song in which Brown moves from
fantasy to reality. "Okay - I will meet some nice
person/ In a quiet little cafe/ We'll make such sweet
love that the birds will applaud-/ Then we'll go on
our understanding ways-/ Dream on little dreamer,
dream on/ This world ain't what you think it is-/
It's just what it is."
Brown's music is folk, a little bit country,
bluesy, jazzy, and rock 'n' rollish. It's music to "cut
a rug" to, as well as sink into a lover's arms with.
Brown's music goes beyond romantic, often
touching on issues that concern the socially con-
scious. In "In Every Street in Town," Brown sings
"And I wonder when the day will come/ when we
don't be so sad and so dumb-/ When a woman can
walk out free day or night-! Without having to
worry if she's going to be alright." In "Just a Bum"
Brown laments, "Oh the man of sorrow who's ac-

Greg Brown's music favors simple, hearty fare,
but his songs also concern social problems. And
he's definitely in demand in Iowa.
quainted with grief-/ stands in line waiting for re-
lief-/ He will tell you it wasn't always this way-/
One bad little thing happened one bad little day./
Heartbreak has bad teeth and a sour smell-/ and
lives when it can in a cheap hotel."
There's a cult movement gaining ground in Iowa
as we speak. The cult movement is made up of
unassuming Iowans who are trying to have the state
song changed to Brown's "Iowa Waltz." I for one am
championing this cause. I passionately recommend
that you see this son of a Holy Roller preacher-dad
and electric guitar-playing mom.
GREG BROWN will be serenading at the Ark Sun-
day, April 23, at 8 p.m. Tickets are $9.50, and well
worth it.
