Born and raised in Wilcox, Faulk has been performing in and around Tucson since the early 1980s. As the daughter of musicians, she went to band rehearsals from the age of 5 and learned to play guitar by age 8. She joined her first band at the age of 19 as a bass player and has spent much of her career playing bass with a number of Tucson bands.
With musical influences ranging across the many genres she heard from her earliest years – folk, country, blues, funk, soul, rock and roll – Sabra began to write her own material and do solo performances, and found that she was developing her own style independent of any particular genre. She has been nominated for TAMMIE awards (Tucson Area Music Awards) in the bass player, best female vocalist and folk artist categories, and won a TAMMIE for best country band in 1997.
Sabra has performed with some of Tucson’s brightest stars, of whom violinist Heather Hardy is one. For the Tuesday concert, they will perform Sabra’s original songs from her three CD’s: “Twenty-Eight Churches and Five Bars,” “Acoustic Angel” and “Providence.” These CD’s will be available for purchase at the concert.
