About the Artist...Bottleneck blues, Gospel and lots of strong folk originals from Berhshire-based O’Herin, who accompanies her Appalachian edged, rein-free vocals with some creative, dancing fingerpickin..." Sing Out
2006 Memphis Blues Challenge Finalist, Berkshire-based, Robin O’Herin plays both original and traditional American music using bottleneck and fingerstyle guitar and mountain dulcimer. Her music is distinguished by her pounding rhythm and authentic style. Robin specializes in historically rich, often interactive concerts that include original and traditional American music, for schools, libraries and small listening rooms. Her concerts are warm, affirming experiences she shares with the audience. She is currently working on two new CD projects: a country blues/gospel CD and an original blues CD.
