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

This song-and-dance production was a creative and entertaining adaptation of the children's book. There are several plot and character elaborations added to the simple story line. Our kids (<5 years old) loved it. It also maintained the interests of the adults in our party.

Based on the award-winning and much-loved children’s book by Tomie dePaola, Strega Nona comes to the stage in the musical tale of a kindly witch who cures the ills of her tiny Italian village. When she hires Big Anthony to help out with chores, Strega Nona warns him not to mess with her magical pasta pot, but he touches it anyway. When Anthony is to his ears in pasta (literally), can Strega Nona save the day?
