For more than four decades now, Robin and Linda Williams have made it their mission to perform the music that they love, “a robust blend of bluegrass, folk, old-time and acoustic country that combines wryly observant lyrics with a wide-ranging melodicism.” Today some might call it “Americana,” but these two revered music masters were living and breathing this elixir 20 years before that label was turned into a genre label for record companies, media, festivals and venues.
Developed at the beginning of the “singer songwriter” craze in the 1970's, Robin and Linda's unique style of music is steeped in the traditional music of the Appalachian mountains, the Mississippi Delta, British Isles, Louisiana and Quebec.
“Vocally and instrumentally, the Williamses combine impeccable musical discipline with a bare simplicity and an utter lack of pretension.” - The New York Times
