Jenny and Robin Bienemann & Emily White – April 7, 2018
Jenny and Robin Bienemann
The husband and wife duo of Jenny and Robin Bienemann are both singer-songwriters and instrumentalists. By turns hilarious and heartfelt, this cutting-edge acoustic duo melds original and traditional music with an elegant hint of jazz, garnering airplay on NPR, Dr. Demento, and The Midnight Special.
Jenny’s new album, “Every Soul Grows to the Light,” is a favorite of Folk DJs and has drawn comparisons to Nick Drake and Rikki Lee Jones. Robin is a 2017 Kerrville New Folk Finalist. His wild guitar stylings and outrageous lyrics inspire audiences to sing-along with songs like “Jennifer Aniston” and “Chicks Dig a Big Amygdala.”

Independent folk-rock singer/songwriter Emily White has been described as standing out “conspicuously from the pack…with her hushed, preternaturally haunting vocal delivery (and bewitching sense of indie-rock-informed melody” (Connect Savannah). She has released four albums, the most recent being the Kai Welch-produced LP “Staking Flags in the Valley.” In creating her show, she “adds an infusion of humor, audibly diverse musical influences and a truly singular sound that may leave even the most severe folk cynics entertained.” (Asheville Citizen-Times) She is based in Chicago, but travels regularly throughout the US, captivating crowds with her unique voice and favorite Martin guitar.
