About Fruitlands Fall Concert Series: Jonatha Brooke

We are thrilled to announce that Fall concerts are returning this year in the Fruitlands open-air event tent. This year’s series of intimate performances celebrates diverse women’s voices in art and music today, featuring an incredible all-female lineup of talented musicians.

On October 6th we welcome Jonatha Brooke to the stage!

Merging evocative folk, melodic pop and an edgier roots rock sensibility, singer/songwriter/guitarist Jonatha Brooke began releasing music in the early 1990s, first as a member of the duo the Story and more enduringly as a solo artist. After four major label releases, she started her own independent label, Bad Dog Records in 1999, and has since released ten more albums – including the companion CD to her critically acclaimed, one woman, Off-Broadway musical, My Mother Has Four Noses. Her 14th record, The Sweetwater Sessions, was released July 10, 2020.

Jonatha has co-written and/or produced songs with Katy Perry, The Courtyard Hounds, and Jessica Simpson. She’s also written for four Disney films, numerous television shows, and she composed and performed the theme song for Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse.

Jonatha was the recipient of a McKnight Artist Fellowship Grant in 2018. She won the 2019 International Acoustic Music Award for Best Female Artist for her song “Put the Gun Down,” and was the competition’s overall grand prize winner. And in 2020, she was awarded an Independent Music Award (IMA) for her EP, ”Imposter.” Her 14th record, The Sweetwater Sessions, was released July 10, 2020.

Concert begins at 6:30PM, Doors Open 6PM
