Robin and Linda met in 1971 and quickly realized that they made beautiful music together. The duo started writing their own songs and by 1975, they recorded their first album, the self-titled, “Robin and Linda Williams” on Flashlight Records in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Around the same time, the husband and wife team met Garrison Keillor in Minnesota. As Robin and Linda’s website states: “They made their first appearance on a little radio show just getting off the ground called “A Prairie Home Companion” and their rich relationship with that icon of American broadcasting has continued for four decades.”

With a rich career spanning four decades, Virginia-based duo Robin & 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. Today some might call it “Americana,” but these two revered music masters were living and breathing this elixir 20 years before that term was turned into a radio format.

Their stirring concerts have earned them a huge body of fans over the years. But as gifted songwriters Robin and Linda have earned an even rarer honor — the devotion and deep respect of their musical peers. Their songs have endured and been recorded by the likes of Emmylou Harris, Tom T. Hall, George Hamilton IV, Tim & Mollie O’Brien, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Kathy Mattea, and The Seldom Scene. As live performers they are second to none, keeping a busy tour schedule and also guesting on A Prairie Home Companion, which they’ve appeared on since the public radio show’s early days (they’re also featured in the A Prairie Home Companion film).

Songs for a New World is an intimate, four-actor rock musical about the universal human experience of slamming into an unexpected obstacle (like a pandemic!) as all the rules suddenly change around us. From Jews fleeing Spain for the New World, to Martin Luther King Jr. sitting in a jail cell, to a woman out on the ledge of her Manhattan highrise apartment building, to a chronically unsatisfied Mrs. Claus, this brilliant, complex show comes at this same human experience from all angles, from people in different times and places, but all of them facing some new world. Never before has a show become so powerfully relevant so long after its debut, but today it feels like it was written just for a post-pandemic America. With music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown, the show had a limited run off Broadway in 1995. New Line produced the show in 1998 to rave reviews.

Oliver Lee Jackson is known for creating complex and layered images in which figurative elements—or what he calls “paint people”—emerge from abstract fields of vibrant color. Jackson’s practice is informed by a deep understanding of global art history—from early modern European painting to African art. Yet his works do not aim to elevate a single message, narrative, or meaning. Rather, the works serve as an open invitation to slow and close looking, encouraging viewers to stake emotional claim on the paintings and not wait for instructions on what to see.

Damon Davis’s All Hands On Deck is a powerful artwork that addresses social justice and the call for change. He conceived the original photographs of hands held up high during the months-long protests after Michael Brown Jr. was shot and killed in Ferguson in August 2014. Recalling the protestors’ chant “Hands up don’t shoot” that was echoed throughout the protests—they were photographed with their “hands up.” That signal of surrender, however, is transformed in Davis’s photographs into one of resistance, fortitude, and community. This free exhibition will be on view through March 22, 2022.

The So Grand Polka Band is a new group of seasoned musicians formed in the middle of 2019. They have performed at the Missouri Botanical Garden’s Oktoberfest, the Urban Chestnut Brewery’s Oktoberfest and also the Tick Tock Tavern’s Festivus. They play polkas and waltzes in a unique style that defies the usual standards of instrumentation while still meeting the required features of a classic polka band. The band leader Jess Adkins has written several catchy original pieces, and plays accordion, xylophone, glockenspiel and the occasional woodwind.

This is Our Youth

By Kenneth Lonnergan

Directed by Thomas Martin

Mark Wilson Studio Theatre, Xavier Hall | 3733 West Pine Mall

October 1 – 10 2021

In 1982, on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, the wealthy, articulate, pot-smoking teenagers who were small children in the ‘60s have emerged as young adults in a country that has just resoundingly rejected everything they were brought up to believe in. The very last wave of New York City’s ‘60s-style Liberalism has come of age—and there’s nowhere left to go. In meticulous, hilarious, and agonizing detail, THIS IS OUR YOUTH follows forty-eight hours of three very lost young souls in the big city at the dawn of the Reagan Era: Warren Straub, a dejected nineteen-year-old who steals fifteen thousand dollars from his abusive lingerie-tycoon father; Dennis Ziegler, the charismatic domineering drug-dealing friend who helps him put the money to good use; and Jessica Goldman, the anxiously insightful young woman Warren yearns for. Funny, painful, and compassionate, THIS IS OUR YOUTH is a living snapshot of the moment between adolescence and adulthood when many young people first go out into the world on their own, armed only with the ideas and techniques they developed as teenagers—ideas and techniques far more sophisticated than their parents ever realize, and far less effectual than they themselves can possibly imagine.
