Robin Greenstein will be March 4 Song & Story Swap guest
Please come share in an evening of music and stories at the Pioneer Valley Folklore Society Song & Story Swap.
Saturday, March 4, 7:00 p.m. at the The Nacul Center, 592 Main St., Amherst, Mass (see map).
Guest performer at the March 4 Song & Story Swap will be folksinger Robin Greenstein. She replaces previously scheduled guest, Peter Lehndorff, whose appearance has been postponed until a date to be determined.
Robin Greenstein is a NYC-based singer and songwriter who blends folk, pop, rock, country and blues into a style she calls "Acousticness.” A music major in college, Robin was mentored by folk legend Hedy West (“500 Miles”).
After college, she was signed to Bob Dylan's publishing company while receiving a grant to do Jewish music research. From working for Martin Guitars as a clinician to being a headliner for Renaissance Cruises, and with a decade spent touring the college circuit and Europe and performing for Club Med, Robin has a rich resume that informs her music and performance.
Her new CD Tears and Laughter was released in fall of 2016, and in her debut month Robin had the #1 album, #1 song (Hole In The Ground) and was the #1 artist on the Folk DJ charts.
