Twice nominated for a Grammy, he is cited as an influence by Paul McCartney, Robert Plant and many new folk artists. His latest album on ECM, Trusting in the Rising Light, has been getting many Five-star reviews.

Also currently becoming known as a painter, Robin has worked for many years also as a duo with Bina.

Bina is an inspired and gifted singer and songwriter in her own right. She has a hauntingly sweet melodious voice and is a pristine player of the bowed psaltery, autoharp and dulcimer.

“Really beautiful singing.” Martin Carthy.

“Pure beauty through simplicity.” Robert Plant
