Robin & Linda Williams and Their Fine Group
Veteran troubadours Robin and Linda Williams hail from Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, a hotbed of the Civil War also known as Stonewall Country. That too is the name of the couple's latest album for St. Paul's Red House Records. It consists of songs they wrote for a musical chronicling the life and times of Confederate General Stonewall Jackson, which is still performed annually more than 25 years after its debut. Tapping historical facts as well as universal themes of strife, duty, and endurance, the Stonewall material also glows with the Williamses' fine harmonies and the group's adeptly picked mix of country, folk, bluegrass, and gospel. And this being the holiday season, the evening's repertoire also will include original, traditional, and unusual yuletide tunes drawn from the Williamses' The First Christmas Gift album. This is the finale of Red House's series at the Landmark Center, and the performance will be preceded by a cocktail hour. (Photo by Frances Dowdy)
