Robin O'Herin in Concert - 2:30pm Hollenbeck Room

Blues and Gospel with Slide Guitarist Robin O’Herin

Robin O'Herin is a Berkshirebased, touring blues and gospel musician, specializing in historically rich, often interactive concerts that feature original and traditional Delta blues and gospel, for small listening rooms, festivals, libraries and schools. Her instruments are bottleneck and fingerstyle guitar, ukelele and mountain dulcimer. Her concerts are warm, affirming experiences which she shares with the audience. Let her take you on a journey of musical exploration through the Delta and Piedmont regions of the South. Song selections may include Robert Johnson, Blind Willie Johnson and Robin's own original blues and fingerstyle ballads. Robin has shared the stage with Paul Geremia, Andy Cohen and Roy Bookbinder. She teaches beginning delta and piedmont blues guitar and songwriting and partners with raisingtheblues.org and guitarsintheclassroom. org to bring the power of music into the classroom and hospitals to reach children and teachers in new and innovative ways. She has served as song leader in several churches and led a traditional gospel choir. Robin has performed Appalachian gospel, blues and original music regionally throughout the United States, as well as in Italy, Norway and the Czech Republic. Growing up in the Sixties, she was probably the only kid in her neighborhood listening to such legendary blues artists as Leadbelly, Robert Johnson, Mississippi John Hurt, Bessie Smith, Blind Willie Johnson and Lightning Hopkins, among others.

Robin makes her return to Geer Village on Friday, April 10th at 2:30pm.

Joel Blumert, Tom Hanford & Scott Camara April 25th

A product of the 60's blues and folk revival, Joel Blumert started playing guitar in 1963. He met blues musician Son House in 1968, an experience that changed his musical direction profoundly. He has opened for Brownie and Sonny, Spider John Koerner, Rory Block, Jack Elliot, and many other folk and blues artists. He’s frequently referred to as a musician's musician, admired by many jazz and classical musicians as well as folk and blues artists. Described as having a confident, commanding stage presence, aided by dazzling guitar playing, and vocal strength. Joel teaches guitar and voice, and has produced the Building Your Voice dvd guide to Alan Greene's book, The New Voice. Joel lives in NW Connecticut and appears weekly on NWCATV, Canaan, CT on his self-produced show, "Guitar and Vocal".

Thomas Hooker Hanford is a visual artist, musician, children's performer and teacher. Born in Norwalk, Connecticut in 1952 he received a B.S., 1974, and an M.S., 1978, in Art Education from Southern Connecticut State University. Under the tutelage of his teachers, especially painter, Howard Fussiner and sculptor, Michael Skop, his years at Southern were a time of tremendous spiritual and artistic development. Tom's lifelong attraction to the visual arts is matched by a natural affinity for music. In the early 80s he collaborated with Kath Bloom and Loren Mazzacane on an album of traditional spirituals, blues, and original songs called "Hanford, Bloom, and Mazzacane". In the late 1980s and early 1990s Tom held a weekly slot in Stan Edwards' Showcase at The Village Gate in New York City. Tom and Kath recently opened for Mark Kozelek at The First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia. These days he performs with Kath Bloom, Stan Bronski, and Fran Patnaude in The Love at Work Band which has released three CDs.

Dobro player Scott Camara is in high demand as a session player. He has recorded with Dave Hogan and Nancy Carey Johnson, and is a current member of the bluegrass outfit the Rafter bats.

Theses three bring their talents together for an afternoon of infectious rhythms, the afternoon of Sunday, April 25th at 2:30pm in the Geer Village Hollenbeck Room. Free and open to the public.
