Jenny Schienman & Robbie Fulks
CD release and Double bill night!
Tickets $18 general & $15 students/ members
Jenny Scheinman will open the evening with Robbie Fulks for a special CD release set for her recent Sony Masterworks release "The Littlest Prisoner".
Scheinman is a singer, fiddle player, and song-writer. She has been on numerous Grammy-winning recordings, just made her debut at Carnegie Hall as a leader, and has been one of the top violinists in the Downbeat Critics poll for over a decade. She grew up on a homestead in Northern California in family of folk musicians. She moved to Brooklyn in 1998 and is considered a leader in the Brooklyn arts renaissance. In 2011 The Village Voice named her "the best fiddler in New York." She has played with the likes of Norah Jones, Bruce Colburn, Lucinda Williams, Bill Frisell, Nels Cline and Lou Reed to name a few.
Video with Robbie Fulks.
Robbie Fulks has the soul of a country singer and the mind of a vaudevillian. Still, for Robbie, it's about the songs. His new album, Gone Away Backward, is a sparse, acoustic-only effort that echoes the sounds he heard as a child, growing in rural Appalachia and features the fiddle playing of Jenny Scheinman who will join Robbie for his set at the Playhouse along with Robbie Gjersoe on national guitar.
It promises to be a great night with two amazing artists sharing the bill and playing together!
"Fulks sounds like the wiseass bastard son of Roger Miller -- high praise indeed" - Rolling Stone
"Chicago's most fertile musical mind...so good, he's scary" - Chicago Tribune
