Beneath the radar of the corporate music world there are gems to be found. Greg Greenway is a multi-faceted one.

He has been described as "one of the strongest, and finest voices in folk music." The Boston Globe wrote, "Confessional one moment, rambunctiously disarming the next, few modern folk singers can own a coffeehouse stage as completely as Greenway."
Prior to Brother Sun, Greg was a regular at Musical Lairs, having graced our stage many times. Now, it is a very rare treat to hear him in a solo performance. This is a not to be missed evening.
