Acoustic Lunch: Jon Brooks
12:30pm, Alan and Rebecca Ross Education Wing

Bring your lunch to the crossroads of American roots music with Jon Brooks who will offer a preview of his evening concert at the Pump House. Jon’s album, The Smiling and Beautiful Countryside, is a haunting album of rural Canadian murder ballads. Need we say more? With a sound that passes smoothly from folk roots and into the future of the genre, Jon tells us what we need to hear using contemporary language and a determined, percussive drive. The Acoustic Lunch series is offered in collaboration with Pump House Concerts. © 2013-2020 East Lansing Info
