I am excited to open up for Robbie Folks at Motorco Music Hall (Durham, NC) on Thursday, May 24! Robbie Fulks is a top notch songwriter and one hell of a guitar picker. His most recent release, 2017’s Upland Stories, earned year’s-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”). My personal favorite off the release is the track "Fare Thee Well, Carolina Gals", with references to local favorites like Franklin Street in Chapel Hill and Northgate Mall in Durham.
The new album, OLD FREIGHT
"What seems like a simple formula: acoustic guitar picking, sincere vocals, thoughtful lyrics and professional production is in fact nearly impossible. So when someone does it right and in this case for his debut record it’s a moment to celebrate." Songs:Illinois
