Folk music fans are in for a real treat at Cuffern Manor on Friday, November 8, with an appearance by celebrated Americana-roots and folk duo Dana and Susan Robinson.

The couple will feature songs from their latest album 'The Town That Music Saved'.

Hailing from Cabot, Vermont, Dana and Susan Robinson combine vivid songwriting and storytelling with fiddle tunes, banjo grooves, elegant melodies, and rich harmony singing.

With over two decades of touring behind them, Dana and Susan’s programme features original compositions which celebrate the deep community spirit of rural America, blended with traditional Appalachian music.

Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Dana relocated to New England where he discovered both a thriving songwriters’ scene and the deep well of traditional mountain music.

He launched into full-time touring after the release of his 1994 debut CD, 'Elemental Lullabye', and after receiving a request to perform at Carnegie Hall.

Susan grew up with her dad’s jazz big band rehearsing in the basement in Manchester, Vermont and learned classical piano as a child. As an adult she turned to oboe and Scottish fiddle. After Susan and Dana met in 2002, she took up old-time banjo and learned from the banjo-greats in and around Asheville, North Carolina.

There will be support from local folk trio Broadoak ( whose unique sound took this year’s Fishguard Folk Festival by storm.
