Robin & Linda Williams Concert
St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church’s Faith & Arts Series will present Robin & Linda Williams in concert on Thursday, August 15, at 7:30 p.m. For more than thirty years, Robin & Linda Williams have been performing the music they love: a blend of bluegrass, folk, old-time, and gospel. They are seasoned performers and gifted songwriters. Born in the South, Linda from Alabama and Robin (the son of a Presbyterian minister) from Charlotte, they met in Myrtle Beach where they fell in love and began a vibrant musical partnership that has flourished through the years. Despite their Southern roots, it was in Minnesota that their career got traction. Robin had made many friends and connections there as a solo artist and in 1975 they recorded their first album in Minneapolis. The same year they made their first appearance on a little radio show just getting off the ground called "A Prairie Home Companion" and their rich relationship with that icon of American broadcasting continued for decades. The St. Matthew’s Faith and the Arts Series began in 2010 as a result of the church’s desire to be more intentional in their support of the arts and artists; to challenge and deepen faith through exposure to the arts; and to use sacred space as a setting for artistic expression. Tickets and/or reservations ($20) are available through the church office during office hours (919-732-9308).
