BERLIN — Dana and Susan Robinson will be bringing their guitar-playing, banjo-frailing, fiddle-sawing, harmony-singing interpretations of the American experience to St. Kieran Community Center for the Arts on Saturday, Jan. 14, starting at 7 p.m.
Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Dana Robinson, a native of the Pacific Northwest, relocated to New England in the 1980s where he discovered both a thriving songwriter’s scene and the deep well of traditional mountain music. 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. Over the last 20 years, Dana has released 10 CD's, traveled over a million miles, and performed thousands of concerts across the United States, Canada, and Great Britain.
Susan Robinson grew up in Vermont in a musical family and studied piano, oboe, and fiddle in her youth. In 2002 when Sue and Dana met, she took up guitar and banjo and studied old-time mountain music in Asheville, N.C. Sue and Dana have been performing together since 2003 and have recorded five CD’s together.
