at the Black Mountain Center for the Arts.

Call now for tickets:  $20.    828/669-0930

Located at 225 W. State Street, the intimate listening room of the Arts Center will offer wonderful acoustics to hear Bullock who has been called “the Celtic guitar god.” Tickets for the concert are $20.

Bullock is a prolific composer, whose virtuosity on guitar, cittern and mandolin blends the ancient melodies of the Celtic lands and their vigorous Appalachian descendants into one powerful musical vision. This second annual Homecoming concert celebrates Bullock’s new home and new life in Black Mountain since moving here permanently in 2013 from 12 years in Paris. He will be familiar to audiences of the Swannanoa Gathering at Warren Wilson College and Swannanoa Solstice at Diana Wortham Theater in Asheville. The multi-instrumentalist recently delighted the audience here at the Arts Center during the Acoustic Corner Instructor’s Concert.

Bullock spends much of the year on the road, touring with Janis Ian and Tom Paxton. This homecoming concert will be held during a short break between legs in the tour. It will also be a CD release concert. Bullock said, “I have a new CD with my “guitar brother” Steve Baughman, titled Alone and Together, which features both solo and duo selections.” Previously, Bullock and Baughman won acclaim for their collaboration on Celtic Guitar Summit when Acoustic Guitar Magazine selected it as one of the top CDs of 2003.  This concert will feature Bullock’s contribution to the new CD along with work from many of his past recordings.

For more insight into the musician, listen to Bullock’s April 17th interview on WCQS with Dick Kowal on Friday at 2pm, then come to the concert at the Arts Center on the following night.
