April 21, 2011 - On Sunday, May 15, Asheville, N.C.'s Chuck Brodksy, will perform his original tunes at Wildscape Acres (ten miles north of Bonham) at 4 p.m. in the intimacy of Harmony House Concerts. Just a quick visit to Chuck's website, www.chuckbrodsky.com, will give an idea of what talent this troubadour has and what fun will be in store for those attending his Harmony House concert. Take a look at his photo gallery online... it looks like a musical travel log... from Latvia & Lithuania to Denmark to Ireland to Nova Scotia to Canada to Kerrville Folk Festivals and beyond! Yes, and pretty soon, Wildscape Acres in Ravenna will be in that photo gallery of his venues! Some song clips and the lyrics to many of his songs are also available online.
