Mercury Lounge Live Presents: John Fullbright & Pilgrim
August 1 | 8:00 pm CDT$10
The Mercury Lounge Tulsa is excited to announce the return of Grammy-nominated Oklahoma singer songwriter, John Fullbright, August 1st for a high definition streaming, full band live performance, with local band Pilgrim in support. Ticket purchasers will receive a custom URL link to view on their home device. Don’t miss this opportunity to see John Fullbright, live and onstage for the first time in Tulsa after the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the music world.
John Fullbright was raised on an 80-acre farm in Bearden, Okla., a 7.6-square-mile town of fewer than 150 residents. A classically trained pianist who began playing at the age of five, Fullbright spent much of his childhood and teen years in and around neighboring Okemah, the birthplace of Woody Guthrie. Critics have compared him to Randy Newman, Townes Van Zandt and Leon Russell for his blend of folk blues, gospel and Americana rock. Fullbright is a skilled instrumentalist and songwriter whose voice slides effortlessly from a low whisper to a wail with a depth of emotion that is as likely to break your heart as it is to make you laugh out loud. In 2013 at the age of 24, Fullbright received a Grammy nomination for Best Americana Album for his CD “From the Ground Up.” He’s been writing and performing extraordinary music ever since.
Mercury Lounge Tulsa is a neighborhood dive bar by day, regional benchmark venue by night, with a focus on showcasing the art and culture of Oklahoma and American Roots music. We have resident artists bringing some of Tulsa’s best original music every weeknight. We have tickets shows most nights, sometimes it is a $5 punk band, sometimes it is a $40 songwriter. We celebrate and support live music and our local artists. We thank you for doing the same.
