Our Next Concert




Join us on May 4 as we welcome Robin and Linda Williams back to the Shady Grove Stage. Full of harmonies and humor, Robin & Linda Williams put on a show that is intimate, poignant, and fun and bring the beautiful tunes and homespun wisdom that made them regulars on Prairie Home Companion for 41 years. Full of harmonies and humor, they put on a show that is intimate, poignant, and fun. Their robust blend of bluegrass, folk, old-time and acoustic country combines wryly observant lyrics with beautiful melodies played on guitar and banjo. As No Depression has noted, Robin and Linda don't play at being country, they are country.

Robin and Linda are closing in on a five decade-long career that has included 24 personal recordings, thousands of concerts on three continents, a Robert Altman directed movie, and hundreds of performances on NPR's "A Prairie Home Companion" and other radio and television shows. They have earned the respect of their musical peers, and their songs have been recorded by such well-known artists as Mary Chapin Carpenter, Tom T. Hall, Tim and Mollie O'Brien, Mary Black, The Seldom Scene, and Emmylou Harris, to name a few. When not on the road, Robin and Linda return to their old frame house built around a log cabin in the heart of Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley where they have lived for over forty years.

This show marks Robin and Linda's first SGCH performance in several years. We hope you'll join us in giving them a warm Shady Grove welcome back to our stage! Here's a link to their music video for "Old Lover's Waltz", their favorite song from their most recent album.
