Acclaimed songwriter Jeffrey Foucault has spent the whole of the new century on the road, quietly building a deep, resonant catalog of songs about about love, memory, God, desire, wilderness and loss. Over the course of ten full-length studio albums Foucault has been everything from solo country-blues troubadour to front man for a six-piece rock 'n' roll band, compiling along the way a discography remarkable for its visceral power and complex poetics, while catching the ear of musicians as diverse as Van Dyke Parks and Don Henley. His most recent album, 2015's Salt As Wolves, was described by the New York Times as 'Close to perfection.'
Foucault’s music has been described as “Quietly brilliant,” by The Irish Times, “Contemporary and timeless,” by The New York Times, and has been lauded by The New Yorker and The Believer’s Greil Marcus. Foucault’s solo act on stage is “as captivating,” in the words of The Huffington Post, "as hearing Bruce Springsteen live.”
Jeffrey Foucault returns to Beargrass with his longtime drummer and tour partner Billy Conway, as Songwriter-in-Residence.
