Indie Award-winning guitar/cittern/mandolin master, Robin Bullock soars from ancient roots to magical realms.
Hailed as a “Celtic guitar god” by Baltimore City Paper and one of the “100 Greatest Acoustic Guitarists” by DigitalDreamDoor.com, Asheville favorite Robin Bullock is one of the preeminent acoustic music masters of our time. In the words of Sing Out! Magazine, Robin possesses an “uncanny ability to combine precision, virtuosity and soul...his reputation as one of the best folk instrumentalists in the business is well-deserved.”
Robin’s virtuosity on guitar, cittern and mandolin blends the ancient melodies of the Celtic lands, their vigorous American descendants, and the masterworks of the Baroque and Renaissance eras into one powerful musical vision. The 17th-century harp tunes of legendary Irish bard Turlough O’Carolan, the spirited jigs and reels of rural Ireland, the haunting ballads of the southern Appalachians and the timeless compositions of Bach, Dowland and Francesco da Milano all find a musical common ground in Robin’s music, where lightning-fast fingerwork 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 multi-instrumental wizardry, taking them on an unforgettable journey into the deep heart’s core and through the music of the spheres.
“Breathtaking...In the tight-wire game of solo acoustic, there is no escaping the core issue: How’s your touch? Your tone? Your time? Just how well CAN you play? Masterfully, if you’re Robin Bullock.” – Guitar Player Magazine
“A rare combination of technical virtuosity and emotional nuance... Robin Bullock has a deep appreciation of the power of music to touch people’s hearts, and the skills to make that happen when he plays.” – Dirty Linen, the Magazine of Folk and World Music
