Dana and Susan Robinson were one of our first touring artists from America, two years ago. They may not be back again for a while so catch them this time around, I promise you will not be disappointed.
Dana & Susan Robinson are two guitar-playing, banjo-frailing, fiddle-sawing, harmony-singing interpreters of the American experience. Their unique blend of song writing and traditional Appalachian music brings to their performances a deep understanding of America’s musical heritage.
Dirty Linen magazine said, “Many songwriters such as Bruce Springsteen or John Mellencamp have been heralded as modern day Woody Guthries or keepers of the American rural spirit, but that mantle might be better entrusted to musicians like Dana Robinson who embody both the heart and soul of folk music.”
