Folk musicians will perform at Shrine

Folk musicians will perform at Shrine Mason Brown and Chipper Thompson, a folk duo from Taos, NM, will perform a brown bag lunch program of traditional music from Appalachia and the British Isles at the Shrine to Music Museum, Monday, July 19, at 12:05 p.m.

Brown, a native of Battle Creek, MI, who took his first guitar lesson at the age of five, learned to frail the banjo in the old-time way, while living in Virginia.

Now, he and Thompson, a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who learned the musical traditions of both his Scots-Irish ancestors and Black blues music while growing up in Alabama's Tennessee Valley, have returned to their roots with a new CD of songs from Appalachian and Celtic sources, Am I Born To Die.

The museum's brown bag lunch programs are free and open to the public.
