About Brooklyn County:


Brooklyn County is the culmination of centuries of musical folklore, picking and tunesmithing. It’s a brand of music that openly identifies with its Americana roots. It celebrates stories and melodies and earthy rhythms that haven’t gone out of style since their inception. Each event is sponsored by Sixpoint Craft Ale (bands drink free and they host a Honky Tonk Happy Hour for the first hour of the event). The Brooklyn Country Fair has been written up in Village Voice, Brooklyn Courier, and other local papers.
