Alison Brown

 

Grammy Winning Banjo Player Alison Brown Playing in 2018 Concert

 

Alison Brown has taken an unlikely path in establishing herself as one of the most critically acclaimed banjoists in the world. A former investment banker (with a bachelor’s degree in history and literature from Harvard and an MBA from UCLA), Alison is a Grammy winner, US Artists Fellow and co-founder of Nashville-based Compass Records. In 2015, the same year she celebrated 20 years of Compass Records, Alison received the Distinguished Achievement Award from the International Bluegrass Music Association for fostering bluegrass music.

Brown combines a wide range of root-influenced music—folk, jazz, Celtic and Latin—and is considered one of the finest progressive banjo players. She and Compass co-founder, husband and bassist Garry West have assembled a stellar cast, including some of Nashville’s most adventurous session players, as well as special guests Indigo Girls, Keb’ Mo’, label mate Colin Hay, ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabukuro, legendary drummer Steve Gadd, fiddle sensation Stuart Duncan, Dobro whiz Rob Ickes, upright bass maestro Todd Phillips, and Irish guitar/bouzouki phenom John Doyle.
