Win FREE Tickets to Robbie Fulks & Redd Volkaert @ the Ale House


Alt-country kingpin Robbie Fulks is headed into the Ale House in Troy, and he’s bringing guitar master Redd Volkaert with him. The dynamic duo is slated to hit the stage at 7pm on Sunday (July 19).

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.

Tickets for the Robbie Fulks/Redd Volkaert show at the Ale House are on sale now, priced at $20.
