Brett Newski will be making a 1-night only appearance in Horicon in support of his 2015 American Folk Armageddon Tour! Horicon Phoenix and Rock River Tap are working together to bring Brett and his funky-folk to Horicon on Friday, March 6th at 7:30 p.m. This will be a *FREE* show but donations in support of Horicon Phoenix will be accepted and greatly appreciated.
Brett Newski moved to Vietnam after becoming jobless, band-less, and girl-less in 2011. There, he wrote nearly 100 power-folk songs in the steaming city of Saigon for his latest release American Folk Armageddon. Newski now tours 200+ dates per year and has been featured in The Boston Globe, NoDepression, Rolling Stone S Africa, Guitar World, and Blurt Magazine. His style has been compared to Violent Femmes, Frank Turner, Jake Bugg, and Billy Bragg.
Brett will be kicking off our 2015 Jersey Street Music Festival on Friday, June 19th, so come on out and get a preview of some of the great music we have to look forward to!
