July 07, 2015 : VIDEO: Tickets on Sale for John Fullbright at Ohio University Lancaster

 

 
Lancaster – Tickets are on sale now for the next Covered Bridge Music Series show at Ohio University Lancaster.  Grammy-Nominated Singer/Songwriter John Fullbright will perform on campus September 12.
 
“John Fullbright is a tremendous young songwriting talent,” said Covered Bridge Music Series Committee Chair Steve Wells.  “Several on our committee have witnessed his dynamic live performances in the past. It should be a fantastic evening in September.”

It was just a few years ago that Fullbright released his debut studio album, ‘From The Ground Up’ to a swarm of critical acclaim. The LA Times called the record “preternaturally self-assured,” while NPR hailed him as one of the 10 Artists You Should Have Known in 2012, saying “it’s not every day a new artist…earns comparisons to great songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Randy Newman, but Fullbright’s music makes sense in such lofty company.” The Wall Street Journal crowned him as giving one of the year’s 10 best live performances, and the album also earned him the ASCAP Foundation’s Harold Adamson Lyric Award. If there was any doubt that his debut announced the arrival of a songwriting force to be reckoned with, it was put to rest when ‘From The Ground Up’ was nominated for Best Americana Album at the GRAMMY Awards, which placed Fullbright alongside some of the genre’s most iconic figures, including Bonnie Raitt.
 
Fullbright will perform in the 475-seat Wagner Theatre.  Tickets for the indoor show are available at www.ohio.edu/lancaster/events/coveredbridgemusicseries.cfm 
 
The Covered Bridge Music Series is a joint venture between Ohio University Lancaster Campus and The Lancaster Festival.  The purpose of the partnership is to showcase fresh and relevant musical talent providing discovery and enjoyment for the campus and Fairfield County communities and the region. 
 
The partnership started in the fall of 2012. Five concerts have been performed on campus. The most recent show, which was held in May, 2015, featured Singer/Songwriter Ray Wylie Hubbard with Houston, Texas, native John Evans opening the concert.  The concert was held outdoors near the John Bright Number 2 Covered Bridge, located on the OUL campus.
 
The Covered Bridge Music Series concerts generally take place twice a year (spring and fall) on the Lancaster Campus of Ohio University.
