Ross Farm favorite Brooks Hubbard makes his return to Basking Ridge with a very special two-set gig. Brooks played virtual concerts nearly every Thursday night during the pandemic in his “Spread Love” livestream promoted as “A music show focused on good vibes.” Brooks has all the good vibes and he’s bringing them to the Ross Farm this summer! He’ll play a set of his awesome original music and follow that up with a set of cover songs sure to rock the historic estate!
Born in Enfield, NH and raised on Jackson Browne and Bruce Springsteen, Brooks has always been proud of where he comes from. He had his sights set on Los Angeles, but on the way to making this big move, Brooks stopped in Nashville to visit a friend and decided Tennessee made a good home base to grow as a singer-songwriter. He didn’t continue west until he joined up with his friend and mentor Stephen Kellogg for Kellogg’s “South, East, North, West” US tour in 2015-16. Kellogg taught Brooks about the hardships of touring life, about the long drives and nearly sleepless nights…but above all, that the true spirit and magic of music was worth every mile. Shortly after, Brooks met LA session guitarist and Jackson Browne band member Val McCallum in Vermont and the two paired up for an album release show for Brooks’ second album “Start of Me.” They played several concerts together, leading to Brooks’ newest record “American Story,” which McCallum produced and funded, hiring his friends, LA session greats, Bob Glaub, Pete Thomas, Greg Leisz and Jeff Babko, to play on it.
This will be an outdoor concert, so please bring lawn chairs or blankets. Picnics/snacks are welcome, but please carry out what is carried in.
