VANCE GILBERT


Doors open at 1:00PM

Vance Gilbert burst onto the singer/songwriter scene in the 1990’s when Boston area folk clubs heard the buzz about someone who was knocking ‘em dead at local open mics. Word of his storytelling sensibilities, vocal and guitar chops spread to New York City and Shawn Colvin invited him to be a special guest on her national Fat City tour. He took audiences across the country by storm.

Vance became a favored opener for such artists as Aretha Franklin, Arlo Guthrie and Anita Baker. In 2006 and 2007, he opened over 140 shows for the comedian George Carlin. Recently, he has been the opener of choice for The Subdudes and for comedian and actor Paul Reiser.

Gilbert has recorded 12 albums. His jazz roots make their way into songs with sophisticated melodies and harmonies and combined with his singing, playing and storytelling have made Vance an integral part of the national folk scene. The Boston Globe says he is that rare performer for whom people lean forward in their seats as eagerly between songs as they do during them.
