FUN IN WINSBORO!!
Vance Gilbert at The Bowery Stage at The Winnsboro Center for the Arts
Saturday, January 16
WHAT A FUN GUY THIS IS! He's played Winnsboro before at the original Crossroads and we're excited that he is coming back! You'll certainly hear "his hit" Unfamiliar Moon" along with "Old White Men" and you'll also hear very funny stuff!
Vance Gilbert burst onto the singer/songwriter scene in the early 90's when the buzz spread through the folk clubs of the Northeast about an ex-multicultural arts teacher who was knocking them dead at open mics.
Word got out about this Philadelphia-area born and raised performer, and Shawn Colvin invited Gilbert to be a special guest on her 1992 Fat City tour. Gilbert took audiences across North America by storm. "With the voice of an angel, the wit of a devil, and the guitar playing of a god, it was enough to earn him that rarity: an encore for an opener" wrote the Fort Worth Star-Telegram in its review of a show from that tour.
Tickets $12 (Advanced General Admission) or $20 Reserved (with Bistro Table)
