deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum is pleased to welcome Vance Gilbert as part of the New England Performance Series. 30 years into his career, Vance Gilbert’s songwriter’s influence can be felt all over the contemporary Folk and Americana realm as he has helped pave the way for many of the BIPOC artists who have followed. Starting out hoping to be an R&B and jazz singer once at college, there he discovered his affinity for the storytelling sensibilities of the acoustic singer-songwriter thing. Word spread like wildfire about Gilbert’s stage-owning singing and playing, and Shawn Colvin invited him to be special guest on her 1992 Fat City tour where he took much of America by storm and by surprise. “With the voice of an angel, the wit of a devil, and the guitar playing of a god.” wrote the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Considered by many to be an integral part of the national folk scene, this Grammy-nominated artist promises to deliver an evening of unforgettable music and storytelling.
