Plugged In held a free concert at Arlington Town Hall at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 25.
What do you get when you combine acoustic guitar, songs composed with a sense of poetry and infused with humor, plus a smooth tenor voice? That would be Arlington resident Vance Gilbert, at left, who is considered by some observers to be an integral part of the national folk scene.
The Robbins Library plans to kick off the 11th season of its series "Plug In @ the Robbins" with music from Gilbert, whose approach to the acoustic singer-songwriter idiom is all his own. In his own words: “I’m black, I sing, I play an acoustic guitar and I don’t play the blues.”
This news announcement was published Friday, Sept. 2, 2022, based on information from the Robbins Library.
