Courtesy of: Jay Brown Music Jay Brown performs January 4th at 7pm as part of the Classic WIneseller's Friday Night Live music series.

The Classic Wineseller’s "Friday Night Live" music series continues at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 4, with a performance by the roots-oriented one-man band, Jay Brown. Dinner is served beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Angelino’s in the Classic Wineseller, 20 Church Street in Waynesville.

Jay Brown has been playing guitar since the age of seven and writing songs since high school. A prolific songwriter, his performance repertoire contains more than 50 original songs, as well as covers from a wide spectrum of genres.

Brown’s eclectic musical tastes found a vehicle for expression when he became a founding member of the old-time swing band, Lazybirds, a band that blends a variety of musical styles, including jazz and blues, to create fresh and soul-stirring sounds.

Brown has spent years traveling and playing the U.S. absorbing its rich musical heritage and performing with Old Crow Medicine Show, and musical legends Etta Baker and Doc Watson.

Additionally, Jay Brown has taken multiple trips to Ghana, West Africa, where he studied, taught and performed traditional African music with the native Ghanaians. A versatile musician, Brown is as much at home playing the blues in New Orleans as he is playing jazz or classical music in New York City. Originally from Boone, Brown resides in Swannanoa with his wife and daughter.

The popular Friday Night Live music series at the Classic Wineseller showcases local, regional, and on occasion, national talent. For more information about special events and Friday Night Live performances, visit us online at or or call 452-6000.
