Robin Flower & Libby McLaren
Robin Flower & Libby McLaren
Freight favorites Robin Flower and Libby McLaren return for an exhilarating evening of innovative instrumentals, tight vocal harmonies, wild creative energy, and loads of fun. With Robin on fiddle, mandolin, and guitar, Libby on piano and accordion, and both of them sharing vocals, this polished and passionate duo creates their own marvelous blend of Celtic and American roots music, grounded in tradition but with a sound that’s always fresh and contemporary. “With wit, searing virtuosity, and warm humanity,” says the website Indie-Music.com, Robin and Libby make music that is “moving, fun, and dazzlingly imaginative.”

Their musical partnership, which Ronnie Gilbert called “a musical marriage made in heaven,” has flourished for more than two decades. Robin has played in acoustic duos and trios with such musicians as Barbara Higbie, Nancy Vogl, and Laurie Lewis; toured with finger-picking legend Elizabeth Cotton, old-time music stars Hazel and Alice, and Holly Near; and recorded four albums as leader of the Robin Flower Band. Libby played in several bands before teaming up with Robin, including a long stint with the Roches. Together, the two have toured America and Canada, New Zealand and Ireland, and shared the stage with Pete Seeger, who afterwards sent them a note saying, “It was a real pleasure to hear you sing. You keep singing!” Their most recent album, Twenty Years - Twenty Rivers, showcases their powerful vocals in a brilliant mix of Irish songs and outstanding originals.
