Accompanying themselves on the fiddle, guitar, banjo, and mandolin, they bring fresh harmonies and impeccable craftsmanship to the performances that draw the listener close to the heart of Appalachia and beyond. The Robinson’s original songs reflect the essence of rural America and their concerts are virtual road trips across North America.
A native of the Pacific Northwest, Dana relocated to New England where he discovered both a thriving songwriters scene and the deep well of traditional mountain music. In the early 1980s, Dana settled in northern Vermont and built a house “off the grid” (no electricity and phone) on 30 acres near the Canadian border. There he founded a popular bakery, café, and folk music venue. Dana launched into full-time touring after the release of his 1994 debut CD, “Elemental Lullabye,” and after receiving a request to perform at Carnegie Hall for Putumayo’s Shelter benefit project.
