Eric Taylor is a sage musician, a lyrical genius and a master of the guitar. If you’re familiar with the intricate Texas singer/ songwriter jigsaw puzzle, you probably already know a lot about Eric. If you’re not familiar with Eric by name, you’ve probably heard his songs performed by people such as Nanci Griffith and Lyle Lovett. He has created a multitude of fans and devotees that are legends themselves in the singer/songwriter realm, artists who have long considered him to be a teacher and a lantern bearer whose time is long overdue.

Eric learned intricate blues guitar stylings from music legends Lightnin’ Hopkins, Mance Lipscomb and Mississippi Fred McDowell. Later, he developed his own unique guitar picking style that would be imitated by many of his contemporaries from the early Houston days, such as Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Robert Earl Keen, Lyle Lovett, Steve Earle, and Nanci Griffith.   Check him out at http://www.bluerubymusic.com/home/News.html.

Robin Greenstein

Robin Greenstein performed at the first Lansdowne Folk Club concert back in 1993.  A singer-songwriter from NYC whose music is a mix of folk, pop, rock, blues, country and jazz; she calls her music “Acousticness.” Imagine a female James Taylor; strong finger-picking, rootsy songs with sophisticated pop influences. Strong soulful singing and memorable original songs make a lasting impact on her audiences.

Robin plays both guitar and banjo. Her superb musicianship, powerful songs, strong singing and relaxed performing style win over audiences everywhere. She majored in Music at SUNY-Stony Brook with a concentration in Classical Guitar. In a show, you might hear a jazz standard, a blues song, or an instrumental banjo dance tune scattered among her original compositions. She was a performer-clinician for Martin Guitars and teaches lessons in guitar, banjo, ukulele and voice privately in the New York City area when she’s not on the road.  Learn more about her at her website http://robingreenstein.com.
