CUMBERLAND – Blackstone River Theatre, 549 Broad St., will present an evening with multi-instrumentalist Robin Bullock on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 8 p.m.

Hailed as “one of the best folk instrumentalists in the business” by Sing Out! Magazine.

Performing on guitar, cittern and mandolin, he blends the ancient melodies of the Celtic lands, their American descendants, and the masterworks of the Baroque and Renaissance eras into one musical vision. Bullock’s 15 solo and collaborative recordings range from innovative interpretations of Celtic tradition, to the beloved carols and hymns of the Christmas season, to deep explorations of J.S. Bach’s incomparable masterpieces.

He has taught 22 consecutive years at the Swannanoa Gathering in North Carolina, where he was honored in 2016 with a Master Music Maker Award for lifetime achievement in musicianship and teaching. Of the thousand-plus faculty members in the Gathering’s 27-year history, only 23 have received this award to date, according to event organizers.

Admission is $16 in advance and $18 on the day of the show. For reservations or information, call Blackstone River Theatre at 401-725-9272 or visit www.riverfolk.org .
