An Evening with Robbie Fulks
- This event has passed.
Natalie’s is proud to present an evening with the talented, Grammy-nominated artist Robbie Fulks in concert. His highly acclaimed album Upland Stories was nominated for two Grammy Awards: Best Folk Album and Best American Roots Song, and he recently produced and performed on Wild! Wild! Wild!, a collaboration between with rock-and-roll royalty Linda Gail Lewis.
Robbie plays by no rules except the ones he hears in his head. He is prodigiously talented, with the soul of a country singer and the mind of a vaudevillian, and is widely regarded as one of the most gifted songwriters to ever ply the trade. Lost in the deserved accolades for being a fabulously unique, clever and heartfelt writer is the fact that he’s also one of the best guitarists around. The chameleon-like tall guy can whip it out in honky-tonk, country, bluegrass, power pop or whatever strikes his ample whimsy at the time.
Robbie’s made multiple radio appearances on the Grand Ole Opry, NPR’s Fresh Air, Mountain Stage, World Café, and others. TV appearances have included Austin City Limits, the Today Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien and 30 Rock. His writing on music and life have appeared in GQ, Blender, the Chicago Reader, DaCapo Press’s Best Music Writing anthologies, “Ampliﬁed: Fiction from Leading Alt-Country, Indie Rock, Blues and Folk Musicians,” and “A Guitar and a Pen: Stories by Country Music’s Greatest Songwriters.” As an instrumentalist, he has accompanied the Irish ﬁddle master Liz Carroll, the distinguished jazz violinist Jenny Scheinman and the New Orleans pianist Dr. John.
