Stone Room Concerts @ Hill Center Featuring Acclaimed Singer/Songwriters Robinson & Rohe

Friday, January 10, 2025 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$20.00

““…all the vibes I love about folk music — well-crafted songs
written from the heart and played with the hands, harmonies that lift the spirit…””
— Ani DiFranco

Curated and Hosted by Stone Room Concerts Founder David Holiday

American songwriters Liam Robinson (banjo, accordion, vocals) and Jean Rohe (guitar, vocals) were brought together over fifteen years ago by their mutual love of afternoon song-swaps, American folk ballads, and wordplay. Since then, they’ve written a distinctive body of original repertoire that draws on the roots music they hold dear, and engages their versatile musical and literary sensibilities as arrangers, improvisers, poets, and producers. Robinson & Rohe deliver a powerful live show replete with effortless harmony singing, soulful grooves, playful humor, and razor-sharp lyrics.

With the release of a cinematic collection of new songs, Into the Night, on Righteous Babe Records in May 2023, the duo brings us “a portrait of togetherness and honest, defiant joy in a messy world,” (Anaïs Mitchell).

Since the release of their debut record, Hunger, in 2017, Robinson & Rohe have taken their music all over the US, Europe, UK, and Ireland, lighting up venerable folk venues and festivals from Club Passim to The Green Note and opening for Tom Paxton and Anaïs Mitchell along the way. Both accomplished artists in their own right, Liam is music director/vocal arranger of the Tony Award-sweeping musical Hadestown on Broadway, and is an original member of the Becca Stevens Band. Jean’s songwriting has won honors from the Kerrville Folk Festival (2022 New Folk winner), the Brooklyn Arts Council (2022 grant recipient), and The Independent Music Awards, among many. She is perhaps best known for her oft-covered video single, “National Anthem: Arise! Arise!” a stirring alternative to the Star Spangled Banner, featuring brass arrangements by Liam.
