Description

Vance is an eclectic folk singer who performs heartbreaking songs mixed in with a razor wit guaranteeing the audience an emotional roller coaster ride of emotions and musical styles. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram wrote that he possessed, “…the voice of an angel, the wit of a devil, and the guitar playing of a god…”

Gilbert is well-known for his storytelling prowess and audience rapport. He credits his ability to read and connect with the audience to his days touring with comics like Paul Reiser and George Carlin.
“I’ve learned more from the great comics than music people when it comes to live performance,” said Gilbert, “if you’re not paying attention from backstage to what these guys are doing, you are not doing your homework.”

While firmly established in the folk community Gilbert references a broad musical repertoire that may intersperse rock, jazz, soul or the blues with folk on any given night. Hence the eclectic nature of his performances.

With over a dozen accomplished albums to his credit and his latest being released the day before his Voices Café appearance, Vance continues to refine his unlikely union of humor, virtuosity, and the unexpected. Whether with classic, original songwriting or ageless interpretations of covers, his is a presentation steeped in deep humanism and bravery, stunning artistry and soul, and contagious, unbridled joy - inarguably the blue ribbons that tie and seal the seemingly impossible package that is ... VANCE GILBERT.
