      It was great to finally see and hear these ladies live. Libby's older sister is an old friend,so an extra measure of appeal was included right there. Had heard of The Roches but never experienced any of their music....really liked what Terre was doing. Only reason for the 4 stars was the mild confusion on stage a couple times,and one song not so well-executed,but overall a very nice evening of music. Charming and pleasant,with some unique touches like Libby's accordion. Thanks for an enjoyable evening ~ the original Freight was home to the band I played in. Cheers, =Brian Voorheis= Cleanliness & Godliness Skiffle Band.

Robin Flower is a wildly creative musician. Her technical expertise on mandolin, guitar, and fiddle results in great romps through her own original instrumental compositions, songs and traditional fiddle music. Robin has been an innovator, moving convincingly through a myriad of styles resulting in music that is hauntingly beautiful as well as intellectually challenging. Always with an ear towards Irish music, Robin has visited and revisited Ireland and is thoroughly moved to explore this time-beyond-time traditional fiddle music. With this amazing music as inspiration, Robin and duo partner, Libby McLaren wrote 24 instrumental tunes for the CD, Steelhead in the Riffles. Robin and Libby's 5th CD, Twenty Years - Twenty Rivers is a brilliant mix of their powerful vocals showcased in original and Irish songs as well as outstanding original and Irish tunes. Before her partnership with Libby McLaren, Robin recorded 4 albums, 3 for Flying Fish Records. These albums garnered consistent airplay on college radio stations and on folk programs throughout the US, Canada, and Germany. Babies With Glasses, 1st Dibs, Green Sneakers, and More Than Friends appeared in Critic's Poll's of top 10 albums in the years they were released. The Robin Flower Band toured constantly throughout the US and Canada, performing at major folk venues and festivals. Her passionate performances, both in concert and on records, earned her such awards as California Arts Council Touring Grants, Frets Magazine's Best New Artist Award, 2 National Association of Independent Recording Society Awards and many others.

Libby McLaren is an exceptional vocalist and multi instrumentalist, featuring piano and accordion as her main instruments, while blending in tin whistle and banjo when needed. Prior to joining forces with Robin Flower in 1987, she toured extensively for five years with the acclaimed sister act, "The Roches", adding a 4th harmony to their singing while playing synthesizer and piano accompaniment. She appeared on the Tonight Show, the Dick Cavett Show, and The Late Show, and a vast array of radio show across the US and Canada. Her keyboard, vocal, songwriting and arranging talents have appeared on albums released by Warner Bros., RCA Records, CBS Records, Sony Records, and a myriad of independent labels.
