Award winning Songwriter John John Brown has set out to educate and entertain with his imaginative new project New York Photosongs. At the heart of this exploration are seven original folk songs that tell the amazing true stories behind some of New York State’s most iconic and obscure photographs. Armed with his guitar, inspiring 4×5 foot photographs, and 15 years as a public school educator, John John Brown shines a light on some of the most interesting New Yorkers who’ve walked before us.
