The members of Browns Giftshop Revival have come together through a love of music. This becomes evident as each song ends with smiles and laughter. Not necessarily attempting to perfect each effort but playing the notes and beats that feel good and right. It is in this spirit that they perform original songs, along with a few old favorites, in an effort to share this love. Influence and inspiration comes from everywhere. A short list of musical influences follows. Irving Berlin, Johnny Cash, James Taylor, Tiny Tim, Bach and Beethoven, Richard Thompson, The Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin, Joan Baez, Bonnie Raitt, Lowell George, Little Walter, John Peters, The Allman Brothers, Kevin Moore, Gabby Pahinui, and Neil Young are just a small example, not to mention more than a few church hymns. From Jersey to Georgia and England to Alabama with some roots right here in Hickman County Tennessee, music has always brought people together. So come on people now, smile on your brother, everybody get together, try to love one another right now. Join us for the Arts & Ag Tour this Memorial Day weekend. We’ll be playing at the Grinders Switch Winery on Saturday at 1:00 and 3:00pm and then we’ll be jammin’ on the Old Courthouse Lawn beginning at 5:00pm.
