We welcome back Robin Bullock to our stage. In 2013, after thirteen years based in France, Robin settled in his longtime home-away-from-home of Black Mountain, North Carolina, just outside Asheville. In addition to his solo work and his guitar duo with Steve Baughman, Robin also tours internationally with Grammy-winning folk legend Tom Paxton, including Tom’s 2010, 2012 and 2014 “Together at Last” tours with fellow Grammy winner Janis Ian. He was again an instructor at the Swannanoa Gathering for both the Celtic and Guitar week camps again in 2014 He also performed at the Swannanoa Solstice held annually in December at Diana Wortham Theater,
Hailed as a “Celtic guitar god” by the Baltimore City Paper, Robin Bullock is a prolific composer and virtuoso multi-instrumentalist interpreting the ancient melodies of the Celtic lands and their vigorous Appalachian descendants on acoustic guitar, cittern and mandolin. The 17th-century harp tunes of legendary Irish bard Turlough O’Carolan, the spirited jigs and reels of rural Ireland, the haunting ballads of southern Appalachia and evocative original compositions all find a common ground in Robin’s music, where lightning-fast finger-work one moment is perfectly balanced with tender, quiet intimacy the next. A warm, friendly presence onstage, Robin effortlessly creates a magical world for the audience with his instrumental wizardry, taking them on a journey to the heart and soul of Celtic and American traditions.
