Robyn Taylor will open the show for Brooksie Wells Saturday, Oct. 24th at Bird Song Studio, 213 W High St., Woodbury.
Brooksie Wells grew up in the South and she moved to New York City in the 1970s, where the thriving folk music scene heavily influenced her music.
Bobby Darin discovered Brooksie at the age of 19, and she wrote for years for Chappell Music, with several of her songs used in recordings and movie soundtracks.
She later recorded with John Lennon's band Elephant's Memory and as a singer with Kid Creole and The Coconuts.
After raising two children, Brooksie began recording again and her last album, Down Home Divas, went to #2 on the Roots Americana Charts. She is now touring in support of a new album, North East Rising Sun.
