Schoolkids Records (Retail & Label)

Robbie Fulks's adventurous spirit has defined a critically acclaimed 30-year career that has included 15 solo albums and two GRAMMY« nominations. He came to national attention as a defining artist of the alt-country scene in the 1990s, with releases on the Chicago-based indie Bloodshot Records, North Carolina's Yep Roc, and Los Angeles's Geffen Records. Bluegrass music has always been a part of Fulks's musical vision bit his new album, BLUEGRASS VACATION, is his first purely bluegrass endeavor. Paired with a cast that features some of the brightest stars of the genre including Sam Bush, Sierra Hull, Ronnie McCoury, Tim O'Brien, Alison Brown, and Jerry Douglas, the result is one of the most remarkable bluegrass albums of the century. In the end, Fulks plants his flag firmly in the bluegrass tradition, a genre that built the stepping stones Fulks walks on today. He muses: "Electric guitars might give way to computers, as seems to be happening now, but the mountains will still be there."
