The Oswego Music Hall is bringing Robin and Linda Williams & Their Fine Group to Oswego Saturday, Nov. 17 at 8 p.m. For over three decades, Robin and Linda Williams have made it their mission to perform the music that they love:
Their Fine Group band is made up of musicians well known in their own right. It includes Jim Watson on bass, vocals and mandolin. Watson has been with Robin and Linda since the group’s beginning and was a founding member of The Red Clay Ramblers. The fourth member of the band is fiddle/mandolin player Chris Brashear. Brashear also does vocals and performs in the bluegrass band “The Perfect Strangers.”
The Washington Post wrote, “The Williamses are able to sum up a life in a few details with moving completeness.” The list of artists who have covered their original songs include some of the greats of country music, names like Emmylou Harris, Tom T. Hall, George Hamilton IV, Tim & Mollie O’Brien, and Mary Chapin Carpenter.
They have been heard on such major programs as “The Grand Old Opry,” “Austin City Limits,” or “A Prairie Home Companion.
It will be held at the all-volunteer, family-friendly Music Hall, also known as the Ontario Center for Performing Arts. The venue is the McCrobie Civic Center, 41 Lake St., Oswego. Doors open at 7:15 p.m.
