The Show

Making his Woody Guthrie Folk Festival debut [Sidenote: Culbreth has attended the fes­ti­val reg­u­larly, but not as a sched­uled per­former. For the pre­vi­ous four years, fel­low fes­ti­val­go­ers would have heard him only at the after-hours song-cir­cles held at the camp­grounds.] this past July, Alex Culbreth played a solo set in the base­ment of the Brick Street Café. Standing with the heels of his west­ern boots over a pair of kickpedals, the Fredericksburg, Virginia native kept time with a small bass drum while he per­formed his gritty coun­try and blues set. Fans of The Band, Drive-By Truckers, and The Civil Wars would do well to check his tour sched­ule for upcom­ing shows; he is cur­rently tour­ing the south­east­ern United States.

In a recent video inter­view, Culbreth stated that he drew inspi­ra­tion from Tom Waits and Townes Van Zandt in his song­writ­ing. His new album with the Dead Country Stars, Heart in a Mason Jar, recently reached #10 in the Euro Americana chart, receiv­ing many favor­able reviews.
