Robey-Morrison Family Band
Nov 11, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$20 – $25
Doors 6:30 / Show 7:00 PM
The Robey-Morrison Family brings to the stage a mix of bluegrass, gospel, and traditional music rich in lyric, melody, and harmony. Denny and Fair Robey played music professionally in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles, CA before moving to Franklin County to raise their family in a rural setting and become educators. Denny served as an administrator in the Franklin County school system for many years, and Fair served as a music teacher. Emily, Gabe, and Austin were raised with the sounds of piano and guitar and learned to sing harmony to the songs of James Taylor, Jackson Browne, and Crosby, Stills, and Nash. As adults, they have all made their way to Charlottesville and have become accomplished musicians in their own right: Emily on banjo and piano, Gabe on guitar and mandolin, and Austin on piano and bass. Emily brings her husband, John Morrison to the mix on banjo and mandolin, and all four are involved in a wide variety of musical ventures aside from their professional lives, including founding and operating The Front Porch. Please join us for a special (and rare) night of music with the Robey-Morrison clan!
All proceeds from this concert will go toward the Roots and Wings program of the Front Porch, offering free music education opportunities to children throughout Central Virginia.
