In the Green Room with Robbie Fulks

Episode 85, Caropop with Mark Caro

We're hanging out in the green room with singer-songwriter Robbie Fulks before his recent concert at the club Space in Evanston. He and his ace quartet will be performing songs from his acclaimed new album, "Bluegrass Vacation," but first...does he have any pre-show rituals? Does he still change his guitar strings before each show? What's his philosophy in writing out a setlist? Does he eat before going on stage? Drink? Does he place more emphasis on his picking skills than he used to? At age 60 how have songwriting topics opened up for him? And will he ever pick up an electric guitar or play in front of a drum kit again, or might this Bluegrass Vacation become an extended stay?
