      EVENT DETAILS
      Robbie Fulks

      with Leslie Stevens
      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.Radio: multiple appearances on WSMs Grand Ole Opry, PRIs Whaddya Know and Prairie Home Companion," NPRs Fresh Air, Mountain Stage, and World Cafe. TV: PBSs Austin City Limits; NBCs Today, Late Night with Conan OBrien, Later with Carson Daly, and 30 Rock. Artists who have covered his songs include Sam Bush, Kelly Hogan, Hiss Golden Messenger, Andrew Bird, Mollie OBrien, Rosie Flores, John Cowan, and Old 97s. Festivals hes played include Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Calgary Folk Festival, Bumbershoot, Birmingham City Stages, IBMA, Walnut Valley Festival (Winfield KS), Wakarusa (Lawrence KS), Americanafest (Nashville), Hideout Block Party, Milwaukees Summerfest, Taste of Chicago, Rhode Island Rhythm and Roots, Whispering Beard, and Pickathon.
