Chuck Brodsky will perform a concert at 6 p.m., March 18, at the House of Gaia Community Center, in Naples. The acoustic guitar player and singer is noted for quirky songs that use wit and irony set to haunting melodies to tell the stories of oddball and underdog characters that celebrate the goodness in people. Guitarist and vocalist Elizabeth Lockhart, of Naples, with violinist Randi Zwicker, of Estero, will open the show.
Born and raised in Philadelphia, Brodsky began performing in small coffeehouses in the San Francisco area in the early 1980s, won the Emerging Songwriter Award at the Napa Valley Folk Festival in 1992 and has performed across the U.S. and Canada, Ireland, Denmark, England, Israel, Lithuania, Latvia, Wales and the Shetland Islands of Scotland. Citing Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen as some of his major influencers, his 10th and most recent CD is entitled Tell Tale Heart.
