Join us for the musical double-header of the season as singer-songwriter Chuck Brodsky shares the bill with San Francisco Giants third base coach Tim Flannery, an accomplished singer and songwriter in his own right.
Chuck has already made the Baseball Hall of Fame, with 11 of his original songs enshrined in the Sound Recording Library. Chuck and baseball make a great fit because the game is full of stories and Chuck is a storyteller at heart. “What tales this singer-songwriter from Philadelphia has,” says the New York Times. “With insight and good humor, he has taken these life experiences and distilled them into old fashioned story songs brimming with wit and compassion.” Larry Groce, host of NPR’s Mountain Stage, calls Chuck “one of the finest singer-songwriters in America. There are a lot of good ones, but when it comes to the really great ones, it boils down to a select few – he’s one of them.” Chuck honed his writing and performing skills playing at the Freight in the 1980s and has since recorded 11 albums, including his latest, Subtotal Eclipse, which features a lovely ballad about right fielder and humanitarian Roberto Clemente.
Baseball may be Tim’s day job – and night job too – but somehow he’s managed to find time to record ten albums and take the stage with such heavy hitters as Jackson Browne, Bruce Hornsby, Garth Brooks, Bob Weir, and Jimmy Buffet. He’s a talented fingerstyle guitarist with a voice as smooth and easy as a broken-in second baseman’s mit, and he writes heartfelt songs full of memorable characters and deep insights about love and loss, life on the road and running for home.
