Garrison Keillor put it best when he said: "I want to hear them singing the rest of my life." He was referring to Robin and Linda Williams, the husband-and-wife folk duo from Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. It's hard to know what's more evocative -- their charged lyrics or their brilliant harmonies, polished to perfection after decades of performance. Regardless of the precise nature of their magic, the couple has enchanted audiences everywhere they go, including appearances on A Prairie Home Companion, performances at The Grand Ole Opry and tours with the likes of Mary Chapin Carpenter and Emmylou Harris. Now they come to the Carpenter Performing Arts Center for a distinctive concert of their very best folk, bluegrass and country music. Learn More

Music by Richard Rodgers, Lyrics by Lorenz Hart
Based on the Mark Twain novel, A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court
First mounted in 1927, then revived in 1943, “A Connecticut Yankee” contains the last song ever written by Rodgers & Hart (the deadly funny “To Keep My Love Alive”). It’s the story of Martin, a Connecticut resident, who’s knocked out and sent back in time to Camelot when his fiancée hits him on the head with a champagne bottle. After outwitting a sorceress and winning his true bride, Martin returns to the 20th century for a happy ending, but not before singing such rousing classics as “My Heart Stood Still” and “Thou Swell”. “So many fetching songs”, said Alexander Woolcott.
