Janet Robin Rocks the House!!
How do you describe Janet Robin? “Energized” is a word that comes to mind. “Accomplished” is another good word, especially when describing her guitar playing! Pure ENTERTAINMENT sums up the whole package, when you combine that energy with her room-illuminating smile & presence, singer/songwriting delivery, and awesome guitar-playing skills. What a wonderful talent showed up in Winnsboro, Texas last night!!
Janet Robin hails from Los Angeles, California, and is very popular in Europe as well as the United States. If you missed the show and would like to learn more, click the link and visit her website. You may pre-order her next CD, to help bring it press, while checking out her impressive credentials and accomplishments! In the meantime, check out a few pictures from last night’s Crossroads’ performance, compliments of Wildernest’s Jim Willis.
Those in attendance were treated to an opening performance from Winnsboro’s own rising star–17 year old Tyler Lenius. I, too, was invited to participate a few times during the evening, which was truly awesome! Let’s find a way to bring Janet Robin back…I believe she enjoyed our down-home East Texas flavored hospitality! Maybe a future Wildernest MusicFest? Your comments are always welcome. ~Gus Gustafson
Remedy Stick Rocked the House!!
Richard shredded the guitar, while Owen kept the pace on drums, with Sparx on bass keeping everyone flowin’ all night long!! Sparx is home-grown Winnsboro, returning to share with family & friends where his music has evolved. All I can tell you is how tight these three were, as they performed a mixture of originals from the new CD, and covers that many musicians would not even attempt to tackle—Richard played “Black Magic Woman” with such style & precision, I liked it BETTER than when Carlos Santana performs it!!!
Anyway, Remedy Stick graciously presented two wonderful sets of music to an appreciative crowd, and gifted everyone with a copy of their debut CD–totally cool!! ~Gus
