New York based Jean Rohe and Liam Robinson were brought together a decade ago by a love of participatory music-making and American and Anglo folk song. Together they shared this love with others in living rooms, concert venues, festivals, and celebrations, honing their skills as songleaders and balladeers.
In 2013, Jean and Liam reinvented their collaboration. As the duo Robinson & Rohe they began cowriting an ever-expanding repertoire of original music that now lives alongside the old songs they hold dear. Both accomplished songwriters in their own rights, Jean (guitar, singing) and Liam (banjo, accordion, singing) let their finely crafted songs shine in detailed arrangements and elegant harmonies.
Whether in small clubs or on festival stages, their performances are intimate gatherings in which listeners are invited to share in the music-making.

“Taking part in a singaround isn’t at all like an open mike session or performing on stage. There won’t be a microphone.
“We welcome musical contributions from everyone, young or old – and we will be encouraging everyone to join in with the choruses.”
Non-performers are welcome to come and there is no need to pre-book.… Continue reading. →
