Video: John Fullbright at the ArtsCenter

Posted by on Tue, Jun 18, 2013 at 4:58 PM

John Fullbright, the darkhorse Americana Grammy nominee of 2012, performed Thursday, June 13, at the ArtsCenter in Carrboro. The 25-year-old Oklahoman, an incredibly versatile songwriter and instrumentalist, ran through most of his Grammy-nominated album From the Ground Up, mixing in covers of songs by Dan Bern ("After the Parade") and Jimmy Webb ("If You See Me Getting Smaller") as well as a few blues standards. Fullbright moved effortlessly through dynamic and at times brooding piano numbers, rendering a catalog of original material influenced by a variety of styles. Near the end of the night, he performed a powerful version of his song "Moving" for those beginning to rebuild after a devastating tornado ripped through his home state last month.
