The Cabot Folk Club presents Dana Robinson
February 8 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$12 – $15
From Cabot, Dana Robinson is a multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter who combines an openhearted singing style, with wry humor and astute observations about community and place. Dana will be joined by his wife, Susan on banjo, guitar and piano, plus Mitch Barron on bass.
For over 30 years, Dana has been a fixture on the folk and acoustic music scene in the United States and Great Britain, playing his unique blend of contemporary songwriting with traditional influences. From performing at Carnegie Hall to providing music for Ken Burns’ documentaries, Dana’s rich voice and landscape-inspired lyrics connect the listener to the natural world around us.
From 1995 to 2015 Dana logged over a million miles of touring across the United States and Great Britain, performing songs inspired by the American landscape. Dana continues to craft his blend of original songwriting and traditional music, bringing his unique voice to the canon of American songwriting.
Dana’s most recent recording, “The Town That Music Saved,” features songs written in and around his home town of Cabot, Vermont, and captures the essence of modern rural life. The album was named that year’s “Best Vermont Album” in 2019 by Montpelier’s Times-Argus newspaper.
Seven Days writes, “Dana is a master storyteller, spinning his yarns with the precise skill of an artisan loom weaver.
“Rural America explored with elegant simplicity. Their music and cleanly poetic songwriting bring to mind the great folksingers of our times.” Asheville Citizen-Times
