Emily Scott Robinson and Caroline Cotter will share the stage for a Whistle Stop Concert at The Depot on Wednesday, February 22, 2017. Tickets are $15 for the 7:00 pm concert at 200 South Jones Avenue.
With a clear, sweet voice, Emily Scott Robinson will leave you breathless with songs that are both heart-wrenching and dark, playful and surprising. She writes with raw lyrical power and authenticity, enchanting audiences with an intimate performance every time.
In May 2016, Emily won the Grassy Hill New Folk Competition at Kerrville Folk Festival. She also received an Honorable Mention in the Troubadour Contest for the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. In 2015, she won first place in the American Songwriter May/June Lyric Contest, as well as an Honorable Mention in the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase. Emily released her debut album, Magnolia Queen, in February 2016. She is currently touring full time, living on the road with her husband in their RV, writing and performing across the country.
With a captivating soprano voice and award-winning songwriting, Caroline Cotter’s music takes you all over the world: from a Parisian salon, to an Indian ashram, to a bluegrass festival campfire, to the depths of the human heart.
Dreaming as I Do, Caroline’s 2015 debut national release, showcases original compositions from her time exploring the globe. Receiving national recognition, the album reached #5 on the Folk DJ charts in February, with Bella Blue the second most played song of the month.
Since the album's release, Caroline has been on the road touring non-stop throughout the US and Europe, playing over 200 shows a year in venues from Club Passim in Boston, to the Alberta Rose Theater in Portland, Oregon. Carolyn was showcased at the Northeastern Regional Folk Alliance Conference as well as the Southeast Regional Folk Alliance Conference.
