New York City based duo Robinson & Rohe are set to preform a concert on Sunday, April 8th at 4 pm at the Whallonsburg Grange Hall, 1610 NYS Route 22, near Essex.
Liam Robinson and Jean Rohe are both multi-instrumentalists, who have played guitar, banjo, accordion and piano for audiences across the US and Europe. As songwriters they push the boundaries of Americana and folk music.
The two musicians have known each other for over a decade, pursuing separate musical careers and coming together to write songs. Their collaboration as Robinson & Rohe resulted in “Hunger,” their debut album full of songs about love and land—often both at the same time. Written largely during travels between the East Coast and Upper Midwest, the songs on “Hunger” pose questions about the traditions and inheritance of a country that is both beautiful and troubling.
In addition to his work as a composer, Liam Robinson was the musical director for Anaïs Mitchell’s acclaimed Off-Broadway folk opera Hadestown and is also keyboard/accordionist in the Becca Stevens Band. He was an original cast member in the Tony Award-winning play Warhorse on Broadway.
Jean Rohe is an award-winning singer/songwriter. She also tours with her band, Jean Rohe & The End of the World Show. Jean’s alternative National Anthem: Arise! Arise! is performed by bands and choirs nationwide.
This afternoon show is part of the Grange spring music series and tickets are $12 for adults and $5 for those under 18.
