1 p.m. -- Uncle Eddie and Robin
We are proud to welcome to the market Uncle Eddie and Robin, a dynamic musical duo from West Virgina with a taste of the old and a flair for the new. Rooted in the folk music traditions of the Appalachian region, this husband and wife team delivers their stunning vocals and tight harmonies on songs that pack a punch. Their musical chemistry is undeniable and their sound is unmistakable.
Ed “Uncle Eddie” Mahonen -- “banjo player, raconteur, and all around Old Dude” -- is an icon in the Appalachian music scene. His wildly imaginative banjo playing, silky vocals, and intelligent, witty songwriting make him a joy to listen to. His style incorporates elements of bluegrass and folk, which he has shaped into a unique and original blend which he terms, “plunk rock”. Robin brings her born and bred talent as a jazz musician and her deep understanding of pathos and the human condition to her every note she sings
Come see them perform traditional songs, originals, and a variety of music taken from select genres, including jazz, punk rock, classic rock, country, and others.
