The Folk Project's Golden Jubilee Friday Concert
The celebration starts the evening of Friday, May 19th with a concert featuring The Robinson & Rohe Band and opening with songs by a dozen select member performers representing 50 years of great member music.
Robinson & Rohe have created a distinctive repertoire that draws on the roots music they hold dear, and engages their versatile musical and literary sensibilities as arrangers, improvisers, poets, and producers. The duo delivers a powerful live show replete with effortless harmony singing, soulful grooves, playful humor, and razor-sharp lyrics. They’ve toured all over the US, Europe, UK, and Ireland, lighting up venerable folk venues and festivals from Club Passim to The Green Note, and opening for Tom Paxton and Anaïs Mitchell along the way. Both accomplished artists in their own right, Liam is music director/vocal arranger of the Tony Award-sweeping musical Hadestown on Broadway, and is an original member of the Becca Stevens Band. Jean’s songwriting has won honors from the Kerrville Folk Festival (2022 New Folk winner), the Brooklyn Arts Council (2022 grant recipient), and The Independent Music Awards, among many. She is perhaps best known for her oft-covered video single, “National Anthem: Arise! Arise?”, a stirring alternative to the Star Spangled Banner, and for her Kerville award-winning song, Animal.
