Bill Robinson & Friends
The group Bill Robinson & Friends was established in 1980 with, banjo, bass, fiddle, guitar, hammered dulcimer, and mandolin. The "Friends" seemed appropriate because, in the beginning, I wasn't sure who would be available to play. Fortunately, I have many musical friends who are willing to fill-in when someone is not available to perform.
The dulcimer adapts well to all types of music ranging from country to classical, jazz, bluegrass, folk and contemporary. We include a variety of music in our performances. The band likes up-tempo tunes, and sometimes you have to strap on your seatbelts when we go into over-drive. To cool things down a little, we throw in a waltz or two.
Bill Robinson & Friends have nine recordings for you to purchase and enjoy. We play throughout the year and hope to see you at one of our performances.
