Dana & Sue Robinson – Stories and Songs
October 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Dana and Susan Robinson will be at River Arts sharing their vivid songwriting and storytelling, with fiddle tunes, banjo grooves, elegant melodies, and rich harmony singing. Their compositions have been featured in Ken Burns’ “The National Parks, America’s Best Idea” and “The Dust Bowl.” Seven Days writes, “Dana is a master storyteller, spinning his yarns with the precise skill of an artisan loom weaver.”
Dana launched into full-time touring after the release of his 1994 debut CD, Elemental Lullabye, and after receiving a request to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City for Putumayo’s Shelter benefit project.
Susan grew up with her dad’s jazz big band rehearsing in the basement in Manchester, Vermont and learned classical piano as a child. As an adult she turned to oboe and Scottish fiddle. After Susan and Dana met in 2002, she took up old-time banjo and learned from the banjo-greats in and around Asheville, North Carolina. Since 2003 Dana and Susan have performed hundreds of concerts across the United States, Great Britain and Canada.
