" pure beauty through simplicity"
Robert Plant

Their concerts are seasonal celebrations of the turning year embracing legend – original, traditional, visionary and spiritual material, and folk music from many roots. This is real music, magical simple funky and true.

"Robin and Bina work together so well because they create a perfect balance of voices.And Bina is a real professional in her own right ,both as a singer and  as a musician.
I see Robin and Bina's performance together as incorporating the best parts of the Incredible String Band and condensing &  distilling it  into a new and unique form of musical creativity .
They blend original lyrics and melodies with folk ,old -timey, spirituals and blues with large helpings of Celtic and Indian influences."

Pulse Cardiff 2010

The whole of Robin and Bina's performance was enchanting and companionable.They kept the capacity audience involved and captivated throughout. Somehow everyone felt so invigorated by the concert that they didn't  seem to mind stepping out into  the dreadful weather on offer outside the hall afterwards."

I have to say for me the highlight of the whole weekend was watching Robin and Bina Williamson on the Saturday afternoon .They were simply marvelous!
