Kelly Willis and Bruce Robison 4/26/13

The music business isn't known for long-lasting pairings. Kelly Willis and Bruce Robison are an exception, moving their relationship that's lasted over twenty years into the studio for their collaborative album, "Cheater's Game."

Middle ground doesn't exist when it comes to Bob Dylan shows.
