Spiral Sounds House Concerts, 154 Sussex Street, Jersey City
For the past nine years, Robinson & Rohe has been performing The Longest Winter: A Christmas Concert and Singalong. This event has become an audience favorite, a staple of the season. This year, they bring their midwinter music to Spiral Sounds, resplendent with a gorgeous backdrop, a triptych of paper cut light boxes designed by illustrator Andrew Benincasa.
Liam Robinson and Jean Rohe bring their folk-music roots and contemporary sensibilities to songs new and old. Robinson & Rohe go deep into the Christmas repertoire: the mystical, the melancholic, the soulful, the sublime. Expect songs you may not know: haunting melodies of old Europe, joyful singalongs of the Southern US, and modern takes on the strange and ancient Christmas tale.
