Saturday 24 March, 8pm (doors 7.30pm)

ROBINSON & ROHE plus special guest, KATE ELLIS

A double-dose of great Americana. Headlining are US duo Robinson & Rohe – ask how they got together and they’ll look at each other as if to say, which beginning should we begin with? The two have known each other for over a decade, developing a friendship as they pursued their separate careers—spanning everything from playing Brazilian jazz gigs to composing orchestral scores.

Liam Robinson honed his wide-ranging skills as an original US cast member of the award-winning play Warhorse’, as musical director of Anaïs Mitchell’s off-Broadway folk opera “Hadestown,” as a composer in the Red Light New Music collective, and as a member of the Becca Stevens Band.

Meanwhile, Jean Rohe began touring and recording with her band, Jean Rohe & the End of the World Show, honing a honeyed, far-ranging voice and collecting accolades along the way (“a sure-footed young singer-songwriter” – New York Times).

Despite their separate careers, the pair began exchanging lyrics and music—Robinson taking a fragment of writing from Rohe and delivering it back to her married to a melody. The collaborative process was the start of what would become their debut record, Hunger. It was also the start of their love story. Hunger is a record full of songs about love and land—often both at the same time.

Special guest for this show is Louisiana-born Kate Ellis, described by Americana UK as a “genuine talent” and her debut album as “simply superb”. Her timeless music reflects a love of classic singer/songwriters, from Gram Parsons and Gillian Welch, to Mary Chapin Carpenter, Leonard Cohen and Nanci Griffith.
