Your "Good News" Online Paper for Community and Commerce

Robinson and Rohe will be performing at the Unitarian Universalist Meeting House of Pittsfield on Sunday, December 16th at 3 PM. A suggested donation of $10 to $15 would be accepted at the door. For the past ten years, Robinson and Rohe have been performing “The Longest Winter: A Christmas Concert and Sing-a-long” hosted in venues and house concerts throughout the Northeast. This event has become an audience favorite, a staple of the season. For the second year, they bring their midwinter music to Pittsfield, with a backdrop, a triptych of paper cut light boxes designed by illustrator Andrew Benincasa. Liam Robinson and Jean Rohe bring their folk-music roots and contemporary sensibilities to songs new and old. Robinson and Rohe go deep into the Christmas repertoire: the mystical, the melancholic, the soulful, the sublime. Expect songs you may not know: haunting melodies of old Europe, joyful sing-a-longs of the Southern US, and modern takes on the strange and ancient Christmas tale. Robinson and Rohe is the duo project of songwriters Jean Rohe and Liam Robinson. Liam is an original cast member of the Tony Award winning play “Warhorse,” music director of the Off-Broadway folk opera “Hadestown,” sideman to Anaïs Mitchell, and a member of the Becca Stevens Band. Jean Rohe is an award-winning songwriter and bandleader best known for her alternative anthem for the United States, “National Anthem: Arise! Arise!” In summer 2017, Robinson and Rohe released their debut record, Hunger, a collection of songs about love and the land.
