ROBBIE FULKS
ROBBIE FULKS
Robbie Fulks is a singer, recording artist, instrumentalist, composer, and songwriter. His most recent 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”).

Fulks was born in York, Pennsylvania, and grew up in a half-dozen small towns in southeast Pennsylvania, the North Carolina Piedmont, and the Blue Ridge area of Virginia. After 1980s stints playing with Greg Cahill’s Special Consensus Bluegrass Band and teaching at Chicago’s Old Town School of Folk Music, Robbie worked as a staff songwriter on Music Row in Nashville (1993-1998). His early solo work includes the influential early "alternative-country" records Country Love Songs (1996) and South Mouth (1997). His music from the last several years hews mainly to acoustic instrumentation; it returns him in part to his earlier bluegrass days, and extends the boundaries of that tradition with sparely orchestrated reflections on love, the slings of time, and the troubles of common people.

Radio: multiple appearances on WSM’s “Grand Ole Opry,” PRI’s “Whadd’ya Know” and “Prairie Home Companion," NPR’s “Fresh Air,” “Mountain Stage,” and “World Cafe.” TV: PBS’s Austin City Limits; NBC’s Today, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Later with Carson Daly, and 30 Rock. Artists who have covered his songs include Sam Bush, Kelly Hogan, Hiss Golden Messenger, Andrew Bird, Mollie O’Brien, Rosie Flores, John Cowan, and Old 97s. Festivals he’s played include Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Calgary Folk Festival, Bumbershoot, Birmingham City Stages, IBMA, Walnut Valley Festival (Winfield KS), Wakarusa (Lawrence KS), Americanafest (Nashville), Hideout Block Party, Milwaukee’s Summerfest, Taste of Chicago, Rhode Island Rhythm and Roots, Whispering Beard, and Pickathon.
Me And Molly
Me And Molly
Nashville and Raleigh based singer/songwriter, Me and Molly was formed in 2015.

In the short time since forming Me and Molly she has opened for acts such as Billy Joe Shaver, Elizabeth Cook, Angie Aparo, Griffin House, Mindy Smith and Natalie Stovall.

Stevens’ command of the stage has been honed through years of hard work on the road. Her songs are both thoughtful and charming, honest and thought-provoking."Singing has always been my thing. i just go somewhere else when I'm in my song."

Stevens grew up in Macon, GA, singing in church and at many revivals led by her grandfather who was a celebrated and well-known preacher around the Southeast. Growing up in Macon, home to the Allman Brothers and Ottis Redding, to name a few, played a large role in creating her soulful voice. ' I always loved singing but it wasn’t until I discovered songwriting in my teens that I really found my voice.” Stevens studied theatre in college and moved to New York shortly after with acting aspirations. It wasn’t long, however, that she realized music was her true passion. Armed with a vintage acoustic Gibson guitar circa 1950 given to her by her grandfather shortly before he died, she moved to Nashville in 2009 to turn her passion into a career.

Me and Molly released a debut album titled Old Friend in February 2017.When Molly is not writing music in Nashville and Raleigh she can be found touring the country.
