It has been four years since Robinson performed at the GNWCA in Columbia. His last visit north was with his wife, Susan, in the fall of 2019. Robinson is touring solo this year while Susan tends to other projects at their home in Cabot, Vt. For over 30 years, multi-instrumentalist, Dana Robinson has been a fixture on the folk music scene in the United States and Great Britain. From performing at Carnegie Hall to providing music for Ken Burns’ documentaries (“The National Parks,” “America's Best Idea” and “The Dust Bowl”), Dana Robinson’s music has permeated the culture in its own quiet way.
From 1995 to 2015 Dana logged over a million miles of touring from coast to coast performing songs inspired by the American landscape. Now based in Cabot, Dana continues to craft his blend of original songwriting and traditional music, bringing his unique voice to the canon of American songwriting.
He has received numerous positive reviews for his music, including from Seven Days, which writes: “Dana is a master storyteller, spinning his yarns with the precise skill of an artisan loom weaver.”
Dana’s most recent recording, “The Town That Music Saved,” features songs written in and around his home town of Cabot and captures the essence of modern rural life. He is also the director at Cabot Arts, located in Cabot, Vt. Cabot Arts is a non-profit organization providing live music, arts events and music classes.
Tickets for the Dana Robinson Coffee House show are on sale for $20 per person at gnwca.org, or at the door on the night of the concert. Complimentary coffee will be provided the audience by local brewer Reckless Coffee of Colebrook. Free tea and cookies will be available.
