Vance Gilbert opened our four year plus run at the Community Arts Cafe back in 2011 after a long absence from our stage and we were reminded what a great performer he is. He has the “whole package,” as we like to say – an accomplished guitarist, a versatile singer and one of the wittiest artists on the folk scene. You get it all in a Vance Gilbert performance! This former multi-cultural arts teacher was born and raised in the Philadelphia area but first became known when word spread of how he was knocking them dead at the open mics at the Northeastern folk clubs. He was invited to open for Shawn Colvin on her 1992 Fat City Tour and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram wrote, “With the voice of an angel, the wit of a devil, and the guitar playing of a god, it was enough to win him that rarity; an encore for an opener.” As you can tell, it isn’t often that Vance gets down our way. Don’t miss this chance to hear one of the folk scene’s finest!
