Don’t miss an evening of great songs, sing-alongs and laughs at Union Hall on Saturday, May 3rd, beginning at 7:30. Two of the Ottawa Valley’s favourite entertainers, Tracey Brown and Randall Prescott, will be performing a tribute to the artists and hits of the 1950s and beyond. Tickets are $20 and will be available at Mill Street Books, or at the door (if not sold out).
Tracey is fondly remembered as a member of the Family Brown, Canada’s most awarded country band. The band released 17 albums, had a nationally syndicated show, “Family Brown Country” for thirteen seasons, and toured extensively in Canada and Europe. The band consisted of father Papa Joe Brown, Tracey, brother Barry and sister Lawanda. In the 90’s, Tracey went on to release two CD’s with Barry Brown and husband, Randall Prescott, under the name of Prescott-Brown. Tracey later recorded two solo CD’s.
Randall was voted CCMA Country Music Producer of the Year an unprecedented ten times in a row. He was nominated for a Grammy Award for work with Robbie Robertson, and received Juno’s and three Instrumentalist of the Year awards. For fourteen years, he has produced the Canadian Pacific Holiday Train, which has raised over nine million dollars for North American food banks.
Randall has played blues harp with internationally-known artists Colin James, Doug Kershaw, Jim Cuddy, Valdy, and a host of others. Together, Randall and Tracey encourage and support the careers of both their children: producer, songwriter, video producer/editor, Kaylen; and singer, songwriter, guitarist, Kelly.
