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

Inspired by the classic RKO film musical “Swing Time,” Never Gonna Dance features some of the greatest music by Jerome Kern paired up with legendary lyricists like Johnny Mercer, Ira Gershwin and Oscar Hammerstein. A ne’er-do-well goes to New York to make his fortune doing anything but dancing, so of course the show fills the stage with resplendent dance numbers. Songs include “The Way You Look Tonight,” “A Fine Romance” and “I Won’t Dance.”</p> <p>Also appearing will be: Harriet Harris (TV's "Desperate Housewives," and a Tony award-winning actress for her role in "Thoroughly Modern Millie") and Henry Polic II (TV's "Webster" & Mel Brooks' "When Things Were Rotten").</p>
