Robbie Schaefer 2015
Thursday, November 5, 2015
Doors: 7:30 p.m.; Show: 8 p.m.
Stoltz Listening Room $30
Whether you know Robbie through concerts in the Avalon with his acclaimed indie folk/rock band Eddie From Ohio (EFO) or through his work when he's in town teaching local kids the joy of creating music, you know what a warm and genuine performer he is.
In this special solo show, you can experience Robbie?s engaging, upbeat songs and dazzling guitar work up close and personal in the intimate setting of the Stoltz!
Since the ?90s, Robbie and EFO have created a large and loyal following across the U.S. and Canada (the mailing list now tops 25,000 names), and has released 9 CDs, selling upwards of 150,000 copies, all on their own Virginia Soul Records. He?s also released three well-received solo albums on his own.
With a wide repertoire ranging from soft folk to more poppy, up-tempo tunes, The Washington Post says of his solo shows that they have ?all the heart of EFO but strip away the more rock tones. What?s left is something akin to Schaefer unplugged, and that?s a lovely sound.?
