Robin and Linda Williams: Holiday Greetings: 2008
Holiday Greetings from Robin and Linda. We don't usually send out more than
one email a month (we are conscious of not wanting to wear out our welcome),
but the holiday season is special. As well, we have a gig cancellation to note
and, since our email list is not geographically specific, this is the only way
to get the news out.
First, the gig that has been cancelled is the December 21st gig in Baltimore.
The info on the last email is as follows: - "Baltimore, MD - Kraushaar
Auditorium, Goucher College, 1021 Dulaney Valley Road (co-bill with Christine
and David Grisman and John Sebastian) - 3:00 p.m and 7:30 p.m. -
www.missiontix.com." We always hate to have gigs disappear, but sometimes
we can do about it. We just hope it hasn't caused any inconvenience for those
of you who planned on attending.
We have just finished up our Holiday shows and thoroughly enjoyed them. The
material is wonderful and the shows are so pleasurable and interesting for us.
Of special note is a review of our Christmas CD, "The First Christmas Gift,"
in which the reviewer says: "Threads that bring all the stories together are
found in 'On a Quiet Christmas Morn,' as the couple reaches into the holiday
hush for the connection to love that lives within in it. They then send
on their way to celebration with the closing song, 'Mary Had A Baby.' It⤁s a
collection to keep, and to sing along with, on long winter nights as the
holiday draws near." Those are nice words for us to read and, if anyone is
interested, "The First Christmas Gift" can be ordered off our web site,
Now we're getting ready to go to NYC for a couple of A Prairie Home Companion
shows after which we'll come home and spend Christmas with our friends. Then
we'll join the cavalcade of stars for the 12th annual Tribute to Hank Williams
shows. They are always entertaining and spontaneous.
Our latest CD, "Buena Vista," continues to get good airplay. It was the
second most played CD on the November Folk-DJ list. Thanks to you all for your
Lastly, we hope you all have a wonderful, stress-free holiday season. We hope
that you're all surrounded by those you love and those that love you. We're
looking to 2009 with confidence and trust that the goodness in us all will
guide us in the future.
