Alison Brown (Fri)
One of the most multi-faceted minds in roots music, Alison Brown is a GRAMMY-winning musician, producer, composer, former investment banker and co-founder of the internationally acclaimed, Nashville-based Compass Records Group. Alison’s brand new album ON BANJO features her unique banjo style on an eclectic set of original compositions that explore the range of the instrument with a cast of musical compadres including Steve Martin, Kronos Quartet, Sierra Hull, Stuart Duncan and members of the Alison Brown Quintet.
Alison has won the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Banjo of the Year award (the first woman in IBMA history to win an instrumentalist’s award) as well as the IBMA Distinguished Achievement Award. She is also the recipient of the USA Artists Fellowship in Music, a member of American Banjo Museum’s Hall of Fame, and was tapped by Harvard University, her alma mater, to play at the installation of Drew Faust, the University’s first female president. Alison made her first appearance at Grey Fox in 2022 and is delighted to be returning this summer.
