Artist puts acoustic folk at the forefront

After touring with the likes of Ani DiFranco and the Indigo Girls, Gregory Alan Isakov is heading out on his own.

Brooklynites are lucky enough that the talented songwriter, named Best Acoustic Folk Artist by the Denver’s “Westword” newspaper, stops in Brooklyn for a show at Union Hall in Park Slope October 28 during his headline tour.

The accolades don’t stop for the South African native, who grew up in Philadelphia and currently lives in Colorado. Paste magazine has included Isakov in their “Best of What’s Next,” for his old-world voice and careful craftsmanship, subtly displayed on his eloquent new album, “This Empty Northern Hemisphere.”

Listening you feel like Isakov is right there in your living as you travel with him — this northern hemisphere is empty indeed. So when he comes to Brooklyn, expect an equally intimate show.

Tickets are $10 for the 8 p.m. show. Union Hall is located at 702 Union Street. For more information, call 718-638-4400.
