Hello dear listeners!
As the days grow shorter, and the nights get colder, we have ingrained in us the need to gather close and keep warm with good cheer and song, and to fortify our spirits against the darkness that surrounds us…
.. and so we are thrilled to continue our holiday tradition of hosting Robinson and Rohe and having you join us in our celebration of the Winter Solstice on a rare, Monday evening performance.
A crowd of friends and neighbors has gathered on one of the longest nights of the year. All is warm and cozy inside, while the cold winter wind blows just outside the door. The clatter of wine glasses and mugs filled to the brim with hot cider gives way to silence. And from that radiant silence emerges a song…
For the past ten years, Robinson & Rohe has been performing The Longest Winter: A Christmas Concert and Singalong. Annually hosted in venues and house concerts throughout the Northeast, this event has become an audience favorite, a staple of the season. For the third year in a row, they bring their midwinter music to the Parlor Series, resplendent with a gorgeous backdrop, a triptych of paper cut light boxes designed by illustrator Andrew Benincasa.
Liam Robinson and Jean Rohe bring their folk-music roots and contemporary sensibilities to songs new and old. Robinson & Rohe go deep into the Christmas repertoire: the mystical, the melancholic, the soulful, the sublime. Expect songs you may not know: haunting melodies of old Europe, joyful singalongs of the Southern US, and modern takes on the strange and ancient Christmas tale. Please join us for this special evening.
About Robinson & Rohe:
Both accomplished songwriters in their own rights, Jean Rohe (guitar, singing) and Liam Robinson (banjo, accordion, singing) let their finely crafted songs shine in detailed arrangements and elegant harmonies. Whether in small clubs or on festival stages, Robinson & Rohe performances are intimate gatherings in which listeners are invited to share in the music-making.
