Chuck Brodsky in Concert, October 27

Sleder’s Family Tavern is pleased to announce Chuck Brodsky will perform on the porch Sunday afternoon, October 27th at 4 p.m.  Chuck is a storyteller, a songwriter, a troubadour, and modern-day bard.  His wit and irony, down-to-earth warmth, and quirky, rootsy, finely crafted songs tell stories of oddball and underdog characters. His songs celebrate the goodness in people, the eccentric, the holy, the profound, the courageous, the inspiring, and the beautiful.  They poke fun at what needs to be challenged.  They’re sworn to tell the truth.


Chuck has performed three times at the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and 22 of his Baseball story songs have been enshrined in the Hall of Fame’s sound recording library. His beloved Philadelphia Phillies featured an interview with him as well as his song “Whitey and Harry” in the documentary Richie Ashburn, A Baseball Life. Chuck and his songs have also appeared in several films and on TV including Radio (Sony, 2002) and Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story (PBS, 2010). Over the past 25 years, Chuck has performed at festivals and in concerts all across the USA, Canada, Ireland, Denmark, England, Israel, Lithuania, Latvia, Wales, and the Shetland Islands of Scotland. 

Influenced by Bob Dylan, Woody Guthrie, Lowell George, John Hartford, Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen, Greg Brown, The Rolling Stones, and Nic Jones, Chuck started writing songs in a style that is very much his own, yet pays homage to the traditions. Having received worldwide acclaim for his previous albums, Chuck’s 11th release, Tell Tale Heart, self-produced and recorded in Asheville NC, was among the top ten most played CDs on folk radio for all of 2015.  Four of Chuck’s early CDs were produced in Atlanta by Sugarland’s Kristian Bush, while four of his most recent CDs were produced in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia by J.P. Cormier.  In March of 2018, Chuck released his latest album, Them and Us.
