World Roots Music Series at the Ark
Alternative-Country legends Robbie Fulks and Robbie Gjersoe will headline in Viroqua
Chicago-based singer/songwriter Robbie Fulks brings his wry and clever wit and his unique spin on classic country to Viroqua, WI on Saturday, March 14, at 7:30 pm at the ARK Center for Arts, 401 E. Jefferson. Fulks will perform with his long-time partner, Robbie Gjersoe.
As a singer, songwriter and guitarist, Robbie Fulks www.robbiefulks.com has carved his initials into the world of alternative country music. Though Fulks's spearhead is country, he has an encyclopedic knowledge and experience performing music from all genres, ranging from modern pop to old time jazz. "My mind seems to be this chaotic jukebox of obscure and unloved songs from the last 50 years."
The New York Times calls Fulks a "gifted guitarist," a "soulful singer," and a "natural performer." But Fulks is perhaps best known for his songwriting, which ranges from witty to weepy. As the Times put it, his songwriting is "one part artful country, one part artful sendup of country and one part a little of everything else.
The World Roots Music Series at the Ark is an innovative series bringing world-class artists to the Driftless Region, featuring performances and music workshops in an intimate format, creating exceptional and unique opportunities for audiences to experience artists who rarely perform in small markets. Following each concert, there will be a free public reception to meet the performers and featured visual artists exhibiting in the Ark Center for the Arts Gallery.
