      EVENT DETAILS
      Robbie Fulks


      Robbie Fulks is a singer, recording artist, instrumentalist, composer, and songwriter. His most recent release, 2017s Upland Stories, earned years-best recognition from NPR and Rolling Stone among many others, as well as two Grammy nominations, for folk album and American roots song (Alabama At Night).Fulks was born in York, Pennsylvania, and grew up in a half-dozen small towns in southeast Pennsylvania, the North Carolina Piedmont, and the Blue Ridge area of Virginia. After 1980s stints playing with Greg Cahills Special Consensus Bluegrass Band and teaching at Chicagos Old Town School of Folk Music, Robbie worked as a staff songwriter on Music Row in Nashville (1993-1998). His early solo work includes the influential early "alternative-country" records Country Love Songs (1996) and South Mouth (1997). His music from the last several years hews mainly to acoustic instrumentation; it returns him in part to his earlier bluegrass days, and extends the boundaries of that tradition with sparely orchestrated reflections on love, the slings of time, and the troubles of common people.
