Shows

    Sep 18

    Wells Branch, TX, US | 12:00pm

    Steve Brooks is a writer and performer whose creativity points in many directions. His songs have been recorded by more than a dozen folk and Americana artists, like Slaid Cleaves, Russell Crowe, and Albert & Gage. In an earlier incarnation on radio, he was a humorist who wrote a song-a-week for Jim Hightower’s nationally-syndicated talk show. When he’s not onstage, you can find him in a pulpit, speaking on topics like “Songwriting As a Spiritual Path.” Or in a library, introducing kids to classic American folk songs. Or flexing his wits as six-time World Pun Champion. If that’s not enough, he’s been an award-winning journalist for over 25 years. Steve’s new CD “I’ll Take you Home” is some of his finest work yet and the collection hits on all of Steve’s strong points. There is the title track’s touching story of a couple’s long-term love and devotion to each other, which changes forms but never fades. “King of My World” captures the conflicted angst of much of the American middle class – struggling to keep up in the rat race while wondering whether this is the race we really want to be running. “Yoga Lady” puts a humorous and pun-filled spin on an opposites-attract love story that could only happen in Austin. Steve describes a hopeful and progressive spirituality in “Live With the Questions:” “I have no secrets to reveal. I don’t pretend to know the answers. Only the questions keep it real. And if to live with the questions is the best I can ever do, maybe, upon some day of reckoning, I’ll find I can live the answers, too.” Steve will join us for special music in the 10:45 AM service, and then will perform a full concert after a potluck lunch. $15 suggested donation but no one will be turned away.

“Steve, thank you so much for performing at the Faulkner County Library. The kid's show and evening concert were both a blast. You are such an amazing entertainer with songs that tickle the funny bone and touch the heart. Come back and see us anytime. ”
