Kevin Brown Reads Haiku by Basho

Singer-songwriter Kevin Brown makes his home in rural Northeastern Washington state, not too far from the farms where two sets of great-grandparents settled a century ago. He has four albums of original songs to his credit, including his latest “Heroes and Sparrows” which was the #3 album on national folk radio for November 2019. In his songs and in his poetry, the rich natural surroundings serve as a metaphor for exploring the landscapes of the heart and soul--faith, family, love, the passage of time, and the interwoven fabric of earth and humanity. Kevin is also the host of Front Porch Bluegrass, heard every Sunday afternoon on Spokane Public Radio since 2002. 

Chris Maccini previously worked at SPR as Morning Edition host and producing arts and special programming such as The Bookshelf, Poetry Moment, Northwest Arts Review, special features and more.
