"Mr. Fulks is more than a songwriter. He's a gifted guitarist who has taught for years at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago, he's a soulful singer with an expressive honky-tonk tenor, and he's a natural performer. It rings true when he says he's only truly comfortable when he's onstage or when he's totally alone. But what really sets him apart is his songwriting, which is one part artful country, one part artful sendup of country and one part a little of everything else." - New York Times

w/ Jenny Scheinman
Jenny Scheinman is a singer, violin player, composer and arranger. She grew up in the sticks playing folk music with her family, went on to study at Oberlin Conservatory, and has been performing as a violinist/fiddler since she was a teenager. She has taken the 1 Rising Star Violinist title in the Downbeat Magazine Critics Poll and has been listed as one of their Top Ten Overall Violinists for the last five years. In addition, she has garnered numerous high-profile arranging credits with artists such as Lucinda Williams, Bono, Lou Reed and Sean Lennon, and has toured and recorded with Bill Frisell, Norah Jones, Madeleine Peyroux, Nels Cline, Vinicius Cantuaria, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, and Mark Ribot.

She has four releases of original music under her belt, the last of which, 12 Songs, was named by the New York Times (Ben Ratliff) as one of the Top Ten Albums of 2005. She will be releasing her next two on May 27, 2008 on Koch. The eponymous Jenny Scheinman, produced by Tony Scherr, is her debut recording as a singer and it focuses on the American folk/country/rock music of her childhood. Crossing The Field is her fifth instrumental release and features Bill Frisell, Jason Moran, Ron Miles, Doug Weiselman, Tim Luntzel and Kenny Wollesen (who also appear on Jenny Scheinman), plus a string orchestra led by Eyvind Kang and Brooklyn Rider.
