Though not a household name, Gurf Morlix is widely known because of his close collaborations with Lucinda Williams: he was her guitarist and band leader for 11 years and produced two of her albums. But he’s also recorded nine terrific albums of his own. An outstanding songwriter, his distinctive guitar and singing styles are very recognizably his. He’s renowned as a producer for the likes of Mary Gauthier, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Robert Earl Keen, and, of course, Lucinda Williams. He’s been a sideman for a host of people, including Warren Zevon, Buddy and Julie Miller, Ian MacLagan, and Robert Plant. This is a rare opportunity to see one of Austin’s most revered musicians and record producers.

Don McLeese, No Depression:
"Morlix's music mines the seam where roadhouse rock, Southern soul, and mountain music share a common source...."
 
Mother Jones:
“Since the end of his collaboration with Lucinda Williams in the ’90s, singer-guitarist Gurf Morlix has produced a series of striking solo albums marked by dark visions and virtuosic, albeit tastefully understated, musicianship.”
 
Waxed:
“If honky-tonk country were written in haiku, Gurf Morlix could be the music’s Zen master . . . Terse and laconic, he reduces each lyric to its bare-bones essence, as if he’s singing in Morse code or emotional shorthand.”

Friends of Bob is a not-for-profit cooperative that brings great music to Lafayette. Please consider becoming a dues-paying Friend of Bob

2018 dues are $15, though if you 'd like to donate more, that would be great. (Since we are a registered 501 [c][3] organization, donations above the $15 level can be tax-deductible.) Before each show, we e-mail a newsletter giving background information -- membership dues pay for the printing of posters and e-mailing of these newsletters. Plus, our affordable admission prices in small venues sometimes fail to cover expenses, so membership contributions provide us with a safety net for such occasions. Friends of Bob is a not-for-profit all-volunteer organization that works to bring outstanding live music to Lafayette. A membership form can be found by clicking on the How Can You Help button at the top of this page.
