The 75-year-old folk-guitar legend Peter Walker (pictured) is making a very rare appearance at the Windup Space on Feb. 8, courtesy of Creative Differences. Walker released two influential LPs on Vanguard in 1966 and 1968, disappearing for 40 years afterward. A student of Ravi Shankar, he also served as music director for psychedelic evangelist Timothy Leary's LSD research at the Millbrook estate. It's an early show (6 p.m.), leaving plenty of time to mill around Station North later.
Robbie Fulks' wonderful Gone Away Backward showed up on several 2013 top ten lists (including ours). Fulks is a natural, his playfulness matched with musical finesse brings to mind John Hartford. He will be at Gypsy Sally's in D.C. on Feb. 11, well worth the schlep down 295.
