The Gage Hall Coffeehouse...
Dana and Susan Robinson
SATURDAY, May 16, 2015
$15 Donation at the door. Doors Open at 7:00 p.m.
The 2014-15 Gage Hall Coffeehouse Season continues on Saturday, May 16th at 7:30 pm with an evening of great music with the Asheville NC Folk Duo, Dana and Susan Robinson. From the Green Mountains of Vermont, Americana, roots, folk duo Dana and Susan Robinson are celebrating their twentieth year of national and international touring. With guitar, fiddle, banjo, and mandolin, their sound is a melting pot of Appalachian, British, and rural American influences, full of exciting fiddle tunes, earthy grooves, elegant melodies, and rich harmony singing.
The genius of a Dana and Susan Robinson performance lies in their ability to capture the imagination of their audience. They can make the audience howl with laughter or hush with reflection as they take them on a journey across America and convey the mystery and wonder of the places they visit. Their unique blend of original songwriting and traditional Appalachian music bring to their performances a deep understanding of America’s musical heritage.
A native of the Pacific Northwest, Dana relocated to New England where he discovered both a thriving songwriters scene and the deep well of traditional mountain music. In the early 1980s, Dana settled in northern Vermont and built a house “off the grid” (no electricity and phone) on 30 acres near the Canadian border. There he founded a popular bakery, café and music venue. 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.
"Exquisite music - physical and spiritual, contemporary and ancient, up to its eyeballs in mud and transcendence. Musicians like Dana Robinson don't grow on trees!"
