Tinmouth Old Firehouse to Host Husband and Wife Duo
Dana and Susan Robinson will perform on the Tinmouth Old Firehouse stage at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, October 14. Hailing from Cabot, Vermont, this Americana, roots and folk, husband and wife duo are celebrating their 20th year of national and international touring. The genius of their concerts lies in their ability to capture the imagination of their audience. Dana and Susan can make the audience howl with laughter or hush with reflection as they take them on a journey across America to convey the mystery and wonder of the places they have visited. Their unique blend of original songwriting and traditional Appalachian music bring to their performances a deep understanding of America’s musical heritage. 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 harmonic singing. Threads of Celtic, country blues, Cajun, old-time mountain music and traditional folk all emerge through the fabric of Dana’s original songwriting. A native of the Pacific Northwest, Dana relocated to New England where he discovered both a thriving songwriters scene and a deep well of traditional mountain music. In the early 1980s, he built a house off the grid with no electricity or phone on 30 acres near the Canadian border. There he founded a popular bakery, café and music venue. He launched into full-time touring after the release of his 1994 debut CD, ‘Elemental Lullabye,’ and receiving a request to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City for Putumayo’s Shelter benefit project. The Old Firehouse is at the junction of Mountain View Road and Route 140 in downtown Tinmouth. Doors open at 7 p.m. There is a suggested donation of $10 to $15, 90 percent of which goes to the performers. Homemade desserts, coffee and tea will be available to support community activities.
