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
Clarinet prodigy Dave Bennett leads his All-Star Septet through Benny Goodman's big hits and swing-era classics: "Moonglow," "I've Got Rhythm," "Body and Soul," "Slipped Disc," "Sing, Sing, Sing," and many others. Bennett brings new life to the music of the "King of Swing" with incredible technique, expression and sensitivity. Vocals made famous by such Goodman singers as Peggy Lee and Helen Forrest are "sung and swung" by jazz singer Anne Seabury. Couples who love to dance are encouraged to come in their best "swing-era" clothes and join the band on the dance floor! (Space is limited!)
