Vermont singer/songwriter Dana Robinson will play a solo show at the beautiful and welcoming York Street Meeting House, in Lyndonville, on Saturday, January 27th, at 7pm.
An accomplished multi-instrumentalist based out of Cabot, Robinson’s openhearted singing style, wry humor, and astute observations about community and place make for an engaging, intimate-feeling performance. His rich voice and landscape-inspired lyrics connect listeners to the world around them.
A fixture on the folk and acoustic music scenes in the United States and Great Britain for over 25 years, Robinson’s unique blend of contemporary songwriting and traditional influences has been heard at Carnegie Hall and in Ken Burns documentaries. From 1995-2015, Robinson logged over a million miles touring coast to coast performing songs inspired the American landscape.
His most recent record, “The Town that Music Saved,” features songs written in and about his hometown of Cabot, capturing the essence of modern rural life. The album was awarded a “Tammie” by the Times-Argus for Best Vermont Album in 2019. Seven Days calls Robinson, “a master storyteller, spinning his yarns with the precise skill of an artisan loom weaver.”
The Asheville Citizen-Times concurs: “(Robinson’s) music and cleanly poetic songwriting bring to mind the great folksingers of our times.”
