Robin and Linda Williams
Devil Of A Dream

Sugar Hill Records

Most musicians have absolute disdain for labels being tied to their art, yet few actually take the chance to step outside of the established lines in defiance of the referencing we assign to their out put. However, there are artists who feel free enough to break from stylistic limitations and create as it suits them. This is most certainly the case with Robin and Linda Williams.

Robin and Linda Williams combine as exceptional storytellers and performers in every direction they attempt to stretch out in. They defy critics, like me, to pigeonhole them into any particular category. But what's left after all is said and done is another collection of fine music that will certainly appeal to a bluegrass audience. But leave room for the rest because they've got the guts to cross those lines and make it work!
