featuring the music of:

Robin Bullock

121_largeHailed as a “Celtic guitar god” (Baltimore City Paper), Robin Bullock’s virtuosity on guitar, cittern and mandolin blends the ancient melodies of the Celtic lands and their vigorous Appalachian descendants into one powerful musical vision. From 17th-century Irish harp tunes to spirited jigs and reels to haunting and evocative original compositions, a Robin Bullock concert perfectly balances lightning-fast fingerwork one moment with tender, quiet intimacy the next, creating a unique and magical experience. Robin is a winner of the Association for Independent Music’s prestigious INDIE Award (with the world-music trio Helicon), multiple Washington Area Music Association WAMMIE Awards, and Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s annual “Editor’s Pick” Award for his duo CD Celtic Guitar Summit with Steve Baughman.
