Greg Greenway in concert at the Windsor Forest Clubhouse.

Chris Becke , Windsor Forest resident is  bringing Greg Greenway to Windsor Forest for a  "house concert" at the clubhouse on July 14th. 

From Chris:

“I’ve been a fan of Greg Greenway since I was in college, where he would perform on campus twice a year.  He’s an amazing songwriter, talented guitar player and inspiring performer who develops an intimate connection with his audience.  Within the folk music scene, artists regularly perform "house concerts", literally setting up in people’s living rooms.  With a small living room, I’ve offered to host Greg instead at the clubhouse.  There is a "suggested donation" that is completely voluntary.  It’s a night not to miss!”


From Greg Greenways   website (

Beneath the radar of the corporate music world there

are gems to be found. Greg Greenway is a multi-faceted one. A rare

combination of instrumental expertise, a soulful and moving singer,

powerful poet, and sparkling entertainer, Greenway is one of those

difficult-to-categorize performers who have found a home in the modern

acoustic genre. Originally from Richmond, VA, he moved to Boston for

its rich Folk Music tradition and has become one of its most unique and

superlative emissaries. Put simply, he is one of the finest

entertainers you’ll ever see. Musically, he draws inspiration from all

over the map–gospel, rock, blues, Jazz, and world music. But his

center is in the singer/songwriter tradition that traces it roots all

the way back to the social awareness of Woody Guthrie. His central

appeal is that it all comes through the singular lens of Greenway’s

humanity and his easy affinity for the audience.

He has been described as "one of the strongest, and

finest voices in folk music." The Boston Globe wrote, "Confessional one

moment, rambunctiously disarming the next, few modern folk singers can

own a coffeehouse stage as completely as Greenway." Another reviewer

perhaps described it best, "A profoundly rich poet and musician. Folk

Music is too narrow a description." And he has legendary energy. His

visit to the Civil Rights Museum in Memphis yielded his own composition

that rises powerfully into U2’s Pride/In the Name of Love. It is a hair

raising, riveting anthem that embodies Greenway’s passion and his gift

for framing social issues. It is a show stopping event, couched in a

presentation of high spirited give and take of such good humor that

audiences unfailingly walk away uplifted.

Clearly, he’s on someone’s radar. Among Greenway’s

performance highlights are a show at Carnegie Hall in the New York

Singer/Songwriter Festival which was rebroadcast on NPR’s World Cafe,

an appearance on nationally syndicated Mountain Stage, and a show at

the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame honoring Phil Ochs. In August of 2000,

Greenway was seen world wide on CNN’s World Beat in a segment on

socially conscious artists. He was filmed at the Clearwater Hudson

River Revival Festival performing along with Folk legend Pete Seeger

and others. Greenway was recently featured on the weekend edition of

NPR’s All Things Considered.

Greenway now has five critically acclaimed solo

releases: A Road Worth Walking Down (nominated for two Boston Music

Awards), Singing For the Landlord (top five CDs for 1995 on the

Internet Folk DJ list), Mussolini’s Head(1998), Something Worth Doing

(2001), and most recently, Greg Greenway: Live (2003). He has been

included on numerous compilations as well, including Putumayo World

Music’s Shelter, Christine Lavin’s Big Times In A Small Town and Laugh

Tracks, Sliced Bread’s Phil Ochs tribute CD, What’s That I Hear, and

the compendium of disrespectful car songs from NPR’s Car Talk, CarTalk


Even as he continues to tour nationally, Greenway

has found new avenues through which to channel his art. He has become a

producer, currently working his second project, and teaches workshops

on song writing, performance, and guitar. He also teaches a class

entitled Music and Social Change, illuminating the history that bore

songs and the songs that bore history.
