As The New York Times declared, “Fulks is a gifted guitarist, a soulful singer with an expressive honky-tonk tenor, and a natural performer. But what really sets him apart is his songwriting, which is one part artful country, one part artful send-up of country and one part a little of everything else… It’s sort of country meets David Lynch.”
Tina Fey, who took ukulele lessons from Fulks, calls him simply “an alt-country genius.”
Fulks will be performing as a duo with Redd Volkaert, who succeeded Roy Nichols in Merle Haggard’s backing band. One of the country’s top Telecaster guitarslingers, Volkaert earned a Grammy Award for Best Country Instrumental.
