For more than three decades, Robin & Linda Williams have made it their mission to perform the music that they love, “a robust blend of bluegrass, folk, old-time and acoustic country that combines wryly observant lyrics with a wide-ranging melodicism.” Long featured on public radio’s A Prairie Home Companion, Robin and Linda Williams are outstanding contemporary artists with musical sensibilities deeply rooted in traditional country, bluegrass and gospel. Their repertoire includes original songs and those gleaned from the rich musical heritage of the Carter Family, Jimmie Rogers and Hank Williams. Robin and Linda showcase their exquisite harmonies and instrumental arrangements along with stellar songwriting, their songs having been recorded by other artists such as Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter and Tim and Mollie O’Brien. They are co-writers of the musical Stonewall Country, which finished a run at Virginia’s Barter Theatre in the spring of 2015. Sponsored by the Friends of Franklin Park Arts Center as part of their GOLD STAR series.  www.franklinparkartscenter.org
