Robin and Linda have been performing for 50 years in a career that has included 24 personal recordings, thousands of concerts on three continents, a Robert Altman directed movie, and hundreds of performances on NPR’s “A Prairie Home Companion” and other radio and television shows. As live performers they are second to none and are at home on whatever stage they find themselves, be it a tiny coffee house or bar, or a large, storied concert hall or festival. As gifted songwriters, Robin and Linda have earned the respect of their musical peers, their songs having been recorded by such well-known artists as Mary Chapin Carpenter, Tom T. Hall, Tim and Mollie O’Brien, Mary Black, The Seldom Scene, and Emmylou Harris, to name a few.
Their latest CD, “A Better Day A-Coming,” spent the summer and fall of 2021 in the top 10 of the FAI Folk Radio Charts with their single of the same name ending the year as the number 3 Top Song, the album ending the year as the number 11 Top Album, and Robin and Linda ending as number 13 on the list of Top Artists. The success of the second single, “The Old Lovers Waltz,” helped spawn a music video which, to date, has generated thousands of views. See less
