Robin And Linda Williams Tickets : They Are First-class Instrumentalists And Superb Songwriters

in Sugar
Robin and Linda Williams are a husband-and-wife singer-songwriter folk music duo from Virginia. They began their musical association in Nashville, TN in 1971, performing in local clubs.

The Williamses first appeared on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion radio show in 1976, gaining them national exposure as the show's audience expanded. They also toured and recorded with Keillor's group, the Hopeful Gospel Quartet.

In the summer of 1993 they toured with Mary Chapin Carpenter and later sang on Carpenter's Grammy Award-winning album Stones in the Road. Their 1996 album, Sugar for Sugar, spent 11 weeks in the Top 20 of Gavin's Americana Chart. In 2004, they switched labels, recording Deeper Waters as their first release on Red House Records.

They appeared in the film A Prairie Home Companion, and are frequent guests on the radio show of the same name. In their appearance on show number 468 (2008-01-21) of the WoodSongs Old-Time Radio Hour, they discuss the film and program with host Michael Johnathon.

Robin and Linda Williams are like your next-door neighbors - assuming your neighbors are the salt-of-the-earth and top-flight performers to boot. One minute you picture borrowing a cup of sugar from these two; the next, you're completely stunned by their jaw-dropping talent. Bottom line: You feel right at home at a Robin and Linda concert, and their music stays with you like an old friend.

Favorites of fans and promoters alike, they have crisscrossed the continent (and beyond) for more than three decades, performing the tunes they love & a hearty blend of bluegrass, folk, old-time and acoustic country. From The Grand Ole Opry to Austin City Limits, Music City Tonight to Mountain Stage, clubs, festivals and countless other venues, Robin and Linda never cease to wow audiences wherever they go.

Their chops don't stop at singing. They are first-class instrumentalists and superb songwriters, able to, as The Washington Post put it, "sum up a life in a few details with moving completeness." It's why their compositions have been recorded by the likes of Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Tom T. Hall, Kathy Mattea, Tim and Mollie O'Brien, George Hamilton IV and The Seldom Scene. Irish singer Mary Black included their haunting "Don't Let Me Come Home a Stranger" on her CD Full Tide.

R&L (as their pals are apt to call them) are in constant demand, along with Their Fine Group, which formed after they teamed up with former Red Clay Rambler Jim Watson (bass, vocals and mandolin). The fourth chair of the Fine Group is a rotating chair filled by Jimmy Gaudreau (veteran of The Country Gentlemen, J.

D. Crowe, The Tony Rice Unit, Chesapeake and Aldridge, and Bennett & Gaudreau) on mandolin and mandola, Tony Williamson (mandolin), Chris Brashear (fiddle), and Tom Corbett (mandolin). Whatever the configuration, the band keeps the joint jumpin'. Robin and Linda Williams: dynamic, hilarious and better than ever.

Of the many recordings Robin and Linda have offered up over the years, you'd be hard pressed to settle on a favorite. Whether their early productions like Shenandoah Moon and Dixie Highway Sign or later albums such as Sugar for Sugar and Devil of a Dream or the more recent Deeper Waters, The First Christmas Gift and Radio Songs (on Red House Records) each is a worthy addition to any music lover's collection.
