Fairfield Theatre Company welcomes back Black Crowes founder, Rich Robinson to StageOne on Wednesday Aug. 5, at 7:30 p.m.

Best known as the guitarist, songwriter and founder of The Black Crowes, Rich Robinson began writing music at the age of seventeen that would eventually turn into the band’s 1990 debut album, “Shake Your Money Maker,” a landmark album for the band, which has sold over 7 million copies.

Over the next ten years, Robinson’s songwriting has evolved into the musical engine that’s powered the band to sales of more than 25 million albums. Before taking a hiatus in 2001, the Crowes catalog included classics like The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion, Amorica, By Your Side, and Live at the Greek: Excess All Areas, a double album that captured the teaming of Jimmy Page and The Black Crowes for performances of Led Zeppelin, Crowes and blues and rock standards.

In 2004 Robinson began his solo journey with the release of his first album, Paper. Paper was largely an extension of Robinson’s musicianship as a Black Crowe, showcasing his stellar and under-rated guitar playing. For the first time, Robinson also took on the role of lyricist and lead vocalist.

Now Robinson returns to StageOne in support of his latest single, I Remember a 7” vinyl that was released as part of record store day 2015 with a special live cover of Jimi Hendrix’s “Up From The Skies”, as well as his latest EP The Dirigible Utopia a special instrumental ep that was a apart of an exclusive bundle package offer off his most recent album, The Ceaseless Sight.

With the release of his third solo album, The Ceaseless Sight, Robinson completes the solo artist evolution that he began ten years earlier. According to Rolling Stone Magazine’s David Fricke, “Rich Robinson has been a gathering storm, closing in on a lyrically spiritual, musically earthy balance of electric-blues, bravado, psychedelic-country exploration and almost courtly vocal cool.”

If you’re a fan of the Black Crowes then get ready for a special night as Rich Robinson brings his solo acoustic act to one of the most intimate venues in the country.

Come see for yourself as to why also Paste Magazine calls Rich Robinson complex with an “originality that transformed the Black Crowes into a band that mattered…With beautiful melodies and harmonies, creative guitar work, fitting instrumentation and, most of all, excellent songwriting.”

So get out and join the Fairfield as they welcome back Rich Robinson, the legendary guitar player for a night of music that will have those in attendance “shaking their money maker.”
