Robbie Fulks learned guitar from his dad, banjo from Earl Scruggs and John Hartford records, and fiddle on his own. In the mid-1980s he moved to Chicago and joined Greg Cahill’s Special Consensus Bluegrass Band, with whom he made one record and toured constantly. Since then he has gone on to create a multifarious career in music. As a singer, recording artist, instrumentalist, composer, and songwriter, his 2017 album 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 .
“Robbie Fulks is hotter than a Gatling gun! A masterly, multifaceted songwriter who can belt out hip-shaking honky tonk, honeydew pop and chilling little ballads with an unrivaled skill and spirit. So good, he's scary.”
- Chicago Tribune

With roots in small town Iowa, Greg Brown’s rich folk style is heavily influenced by his origins. His mother played electric guitar, his grandfather was a banjo player and his father was a holy roller preacher. Brown’s songwriting has been lauded by many, and his songs have been covered by Willie Nelson, Carlos Santana, Joan Baez, Mary Chapin Carpenter and more. At the personal request of Jeff Bridges, Brown also contributed songs for Bridges’ Oscar-Winning role in the film Crazy Heart. Ultimately, brown is a storyteller who moves his audiences with his warmth, humor and deeply human musical vision.
