Sunday, February 27th 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Arcata audiences will be treated to a duo concert from Robbie Fulks and violinist Jenny Scheinman Sunday, February 27th at 7:00 p.m. These musical collaborators will bring their sweet sounds to a one night performance at the Arcata Playhouse.
A singer, recording artist, instrumentalist, composer and songwriter, Fulks grew up in southeast Pennsylvania. His early solo work — Country Love Songs (1996) and South Mouth (1997) — helped define the “alternative country” movement of the 1990s.
His most recent solo release, 2017’s 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 (“Alabama At Night”).
Jenny Scheinman grew up on a homestead in Petrolia in a family of folk musicians, studied at Oberlin Conservatory, graduated with a degree in English literature from UC Berkeley, and has been performing since she was a teenager. She has taken the #1 Rising Star Violinist title in the Downbeat Magazine Critics Poll and has been listed as one of their Top Ten Overall Violinists for a decade. She has garnered numerous high-profile arranging credits with Lucinda Williams, Bono, Lou Reed, Metallica and Sean Lennon, and has toured and recorded with Bill Frisell, Bruce Cockburn, Norah Jones, Madeleine Peyroux, Nels Cline, Vinicius Cantuaria, Rodney Crowell, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Mark Ribot. She has seven CDs of original music to date; Mischief & Mayhem, Jenny Scheinman, Crossing The Field, 12 Songs, Shalagaster, The Rabbi’s Lover and Live At Yoshi’s.
