AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE NATIONAL FOLK SCENE!

Vance Gilbert burst onto the singer/songwriter scene in the early 90's when buzz started spreading in the folk clubs of Boston about an ex-multicultural arts teacher who was knocking 'em dead at open mics.  Vance started out hoping to be a jazz singer, and then discovered his affinity for the storytelling sensibilities of acoustic folk music. Once word got out about Gilbert, Shawn Colvin invited him to be special guest on her Fat City Tour.

Considered by many to be an integral part of the national folk scene, Gilbert's approach to the acoustic singer songwriter idiom is significant. Gilbert's compositions, while frequently employing sophisticated melodies and harmonies that attest to his jazz roots, remain sublime attestations to the storyteller's craft.

Noted for being the ever-consummate performer, Gilbert has recorded 12 albums, and opened for artists as varied as Aretha Franklin, Arlo Guthrie, Anita Baker, and the Milk Carton Kids. Don’t miss his first performance at the Shady Grove Coffeehouse!
