Jay Brown is a roots music one-man-band from Black Mountain, who has been playing guitar since the age of 7 and writing songs since high school. A prolific songwriter, Jay’s performance repertoire contains more than 100 original songs, as well as hundreds of covers from a wide spectrum of genres. Jay has spent years traveling and playing around the U.S., absorbing our rich musical heritage and performing with artists such as Doc Watson, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Etta Baker.
A versatile musician, Jay is as much at home swingin’ the blues and boogie with his buddies in the Lazybirds as he is playing songwriter showcases and house concerts. You can usually find him blending his styles in the pubs and listening rooms around the Appalachian mountains of North Carolina.
