About this speaker

Although he has played more than 1,000 shows in venues and on festival stages in the U.S. and Europe, Roebuck can just as easily be seen performing on a street corner in New Orleans or New York City. At 41, Roebuck has two one-man band albums under his belt. A third is in the works. Besides being voted the best subway performer by the New York Press in 2002, he’s been cultivating a nationwide following thanks to a life based on touring and hype free music.
