December 21 – Robinson and Rohe – The Longest Winter

 


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 nine years, Robinson & Rohe has been performing a Lightbox Christmas Concert and Singalong. Annually hosted in their Brooklyn home (always teeming with friends and neighbors), this event is full of good food and drink and beautiful music, and has been a high point of every year. This winter solstice, they return to Dupuy’s Landing,  bringing their midwinter music resplendent with a gorgeous set piece, 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. Suitable for all ages.
