Brownfield, of Columbus, regularly performs in Ohio, Atlanta and New York, according to a press release from the Woodward Opera House Conservancy. She has opened shows for Loudon Wainwright III, Peter Case, Shawn Mullins and Indigo Girls over the years.
Brownfield will be joined on-stage by Jeff Dalrymple, a versatile performer who also writes instrumental music for film and television.
