But of course our Spotlight nights are also an opportunity for anyone to try a song, a tune or a poem - celebratory or not - knowing that they have a sympathetic audience and spotlights if they want to stand in them, although there is no obligation to perform, and those who simply like to listen (and taste the excellent and inexpensive beer) are welcome.

Dana & Susan Robinson

Dana and Susan Robinson are two guitar-playing, banjo-frailing, fiddle-sawing and harmony-singing interpreters of the American experience. Their unique blend of contemporary song-writing and traditional Appalachian music brings to their performances a deep understanding of America’s musical heritage.

Since 1994 Dana has released nine critically acclaimed albums working with such producers
as Grammy-award winning Bil VornDick and Pete Sutherland. Dana and Susan’s last two CDs,
Round My Door and Big Mystery, went to number one and number three respectively on the Folk
DJ charts with two top ten singles.

Dirty Linen magazine said, “Many songwriters such as Bruce Springsteen or John Mellencamp have been heralded as modern day Woody Guthries or keepers of the American rural spirit, but that mantle might be better entrusted to musicians like Dana Robinson who embody both the heart and soul of folk music.”

“…have long been one of my favourite American roots duos, their old-timey music I think, is absolutely superb – banjo, fiddle, guitar - fantastic… great stuff.” Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2

"The best acoustic fiddle, mandolin and guitar players seem to have an unerring ability to embrace a rhythm... Dana Robinson can do this and, when he does, all you can do is to give him room, step back and smile. He and Susan Robinson, along with her beautifully understated way with a banjo or a vocal harmony, are worth traveling distances to see." Maverick Magazine
