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.”
