Live Music with Brock Zeman

 

When it comes to storytelling, Brock Zeman is a master craftsman. The Canada-based singer-songwriter has spent the past 12 years carving and chiseling Americana soundscapes, drawing from roots-rock and alternative country. But what separates Zeman from his contemporaries isn’t a willingness to speak truth – it’s his unwillingness to conform to the rules of Nashville and the traditional framework of genre. What gives Zeman’s stories force isn’t that he’s just singing a narrative – he’s living it…

Brock plays the Cove on Friday March 13th from 6-9pm. Join us for a great night!

 

Date :
March 13, 2020 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm
