Dana Robinson was born and raised on the West Coast (Oregon & California) and came into New England’s coffeehouse scene the mid 80’s. His musical direction took a turn to the traditional in the early 90’s with the discovery southern mountain music, and bands such as the Horseflies, Donna The Buffalo, and Tim O'Brien. Now, teamed up with Susan, they present the best of both worlds: Songs that portray a deep affection for the landscape - vignettes of rural America - that are backed up by a rhythmic guitar and banjo driven sound, fiddle tunes and harmonies.
