Few names in acoustic folk music are bigger than Robin and Linda
Williams. The acclaimed husband and wife duo honed their skills at
Nashville open mics and songwriters’ workshops in the early ’70s,
before catching their first break, when they secured a spot on Garrison
Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion” radio show. For years, they
appeared on the show as many as a dozen times a year, and they
appeared, prominently, in the film version of “A Prairie Home
Companion” in 2006. With more than 15 albums to their credit, they’ve
had their songs covered by the likes of Emmylou Harris, Mary Chapin
Carpenter, Tom T. Hall and the Seldom Scene. The duo comes to town in
support of “Radio Songs,” an album that collects 19 performances from
“A Prairie Home Companion.” For more information, call 375-2342. LM.
