For more than three decades, Robin and Linda Williams have made it their mission to perform the music that they love, “a robust blend of bluegrass, folk, old-time and acoustic country that combines wryly observant lyrics with a wide-ranging melodicism.”
The list of artists who have covered their original songs include some of the greats of country music, names like Emmylou Harris, Tom T. Hall, George Hamilton IV, Tim and Mollie O’Brien, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Kathy Mattea and The Seldom Scene.”
Robin and Linda have made appearances on such major programs as “The Grand Old Opry,” “Austin City Limits,” “Music City Tonight,” and “Mountain Stage,” and they continue to make frequent appearances on “A Prairie Home Companion.” They tour constantly with “Their Fine Group,” whose band members include Jim Watson on bass, vocals and mandolin and fiddle/mandolin player, Chris Brashear.
