Larry Hanks and Deborah Robins (Special Event)

  • 8:00 PM - 10:30 PM
  • Mount Lubentia (The Wallace's), Upper Marlboro, MD
American songsters Larry Hanks and Deborah Robins love to sing the old songs. Berkeley-based folksinger Larry Hanks has been called a "folksingers' folksinger. ? A pillar of the west coast folk scene, he has captivated audiences for five decades with his resonant bass voice, his sparse and tasteful guitar accompaniments and his loving approach to every song. Larry's eclectic repertoire of American songs includes traditional, work, blues and political songs, from comic to poignant, as well as songs from figures like U. Utah Phillips, Woody Guthrie, Leadbelly, Malvina Reynolds and Stephen Foster. Not to mention his prodigious store of cowboy songs and other songs of the American West.

Larry now makes music with his wife and singing partner Deborah Robins, a Chicago native, who brings her own rich talents to the mix, in both harmony and lead vocals and a second guitar. The two have a newly-released CD, The Wheel of Time, to add to their critically acclaimed recordings, Old Days and No Hiding Place. Deborah has just released a wonderful new solo CD, Lone Journey, while Larry puts the finishing touches on a Songs of the West solo release.

Come to Larry and Deborah's concert prepared for a warm and memorable experience, and lots of good singing.
