Bluegrass fans rejoice!
Nell Robinson concert added March 28

Ramblin' Jack Elliott & Nell Robinson

 “Heartfelt vocals and soaring harmonies”

                         —San Francisco Chronicle

We are excited to announce the addition of rising bluegrass star Nell Robinson, performing The Rose of No-Man's Land with special guests Ramblin' Jack Elliott, John Doe, and Maxine Hong Kingston on Saturday, March 28, at 8pm in our intimate Carriage House Theatre.

Hailed as “a modern-day Patsy Cline,” Robinson is one of the freshest performers on the scene today. Her southern heritage and passion for Americana come together in The Rose of No-Man’s Land, a musical telling of her family’s military service from the Revolutionary War to the present day. 

With lush vocals, artisan storytelling, and a little help from an all-star group of friends, Robinson crafts a musical experience that is by turns rollicking, funny, and poignant. Check out more info about Nell Robinson at
