Old Songs at Caffè Lena — Virtual Concert
For more than 50 years, British expatriate John Roberts has been singing and playing folk songs. Songs of the sea are one of his great specialties. He is also considered one of the foremost Anglo concertina players in the English-speaking world and uses the banjo for unique settings in many of the songs he sings. He can give the background of any song he performs, generally delivered as a ripping good story telling the listener the circumstances from which it might have been written and from whom the song was collected. John and his long-time music partner, Tony Barrand (another British expatriate) are often cited as influences and mentors to many listeners, singers and musicians when it comes to traditional folk music of the English speaking world.
The concert will be streamed on YouTube. Please mention John Roberts in the Tip Jar to support the artists and Old Songs. No Advanced Ticket Sales.
