Robbie Fulks & Redd Volkaert Recommended Soundboard All Ages

When: Sat., Aug. 22, 7 p.m. 2015
Price: $15-$35
Regular Reader readers probably know that I often call Robbie Fulks one of the finest singers, songwriters, and guitarists in the U.S. He’s a genuine craftsman, with wide ears and wider curiosity. But he’s also a stitch, a quick-thinking wit who can entertain crowds with what he does between songs as much as what he does while playing them. That makes this special collaboration with guitar slinger Redd Volkaert extra tantalizing. Volkaert is a serious twang merchant who made his name during a four-year stint as lead guitarist for Merle Haggard, and his versatility allows him to excel in all sorts of roots-music contexts (including the work he’s done with Ray Price, Dale Watson, and Brad Paisley). The last few months he and Fulks have been doing duo shows in which they swap tunes, then swap repartee. Which part will be more fun I can’t quite say, but having to choose between those options is a good dilemma to have.
