Third Online Concert in “White Horse Live” Series to Feature Roots Music Troubadour Chuck Brodsky
Black Mountain, North Carolina – In keeping with its mission to build community through “music, arts, and spirit,” listening room White Horse Black Mountain is proud to announce a new virtual concert series. “White Horse Live” features high-quality performances, professional sound, and multi-camera production, streaming to listeners worldwide via an online portal and Facebook Live. The initial two performances in the series spotlighted Celtic multi-instrumentalist Robin Bullock and singer, songwriter, and activist David LaMotte, respectively. Set for Saturday, May 9th, the next installment of “White Horse Live” will highlight Chuck Brodsky.
“Chuck Brodsky is one of our finest songwriters,” remarks Bob Hinkle, owner of White Horse Black Mountain. “He tells a lyrical story like nobody else. Chuck’s characters become so real that you think they’re going to walk on stage any minute. They’re a variety of heroes, misfits, and ne’er-do-wells, many of which are so well drawn that I actually find them in my own memory, as though they’re a real part of my life.”
A storyteller, a songwriter, a modern day bard, Chuck Brodsky has performed all across the USA, Canada, Ireland, Denmark, England, Israel, Lithuania, Latvia, Wales, and the Shetland Islands of Scotland. He’s 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 songs celebrate the goodness in people – the eccentric, the holy, the profound, the courageous, the inspiring, the beautiful. They poke fun at what needs poking and sometimes challenge what needs to be challenged. They’re sworn to tell the truth.
When the COVID-19 pandemic necessitated that White Horse Black Mountain temporarily close its doors, Bob Hinkle and his team began looking for safe ways to keep the music going and stay connected with their community. “If you can’t bring ’em to White Horse, have White Horse show up in people’s living room!” Bob continues. “A viewer gets a more personal take on each performer. It’s almost like the artist is performing just for you.”
“White Horse Live” with Chuck Brodsky streams live on the White Horse Live portal and Facebook Live this Saturday night, May 9th. Hosted by Bob Hinkle and Radhaus.Studio, the show kicks off at 8 PM EST and runs for approximately one hour. While the stream is free to the public, donations for the band and venue are much appreciated – and help White Horse keep the lights on and the music playing during these unusual times.
Bob also believes there are some additional benefits to streaming concerts at home that you may not have thought of… “Your average gas mileage will be better. Doesn’t matter if the weather’s lousy. If you’re with the right person, you can cuddle. Yeah, I know, it’s not quite the same as seeing a show in person,” Bob concludes, “but it certainly does have its own appeal. Join us and see.”
