without comments

Russ Hopkins and Pamela Robinson performed at Streetmosphere last Sunday. The two musicians, who have been friends for over 25 years, will be performing songs from diverse traditions and styles including folk, blues, rock, singer-songwriter and Americana.

Russ notes, “We are both singers, song-writers and multi-instrumentalists, and we both share a taste for good tunes, no matter what the source.” The two musicians have worked together for years, Russ producing Pamela’s solo records when he worked at Kiva records and Pamela making appearances on his solo records as well. Russ notes, “We share a love of indigenous culture and music. We have a musical connection that makes performing together a lot of fun.”

Russ notes, “We enjoy making music in public spaces… Streetmosphere is an amazing way to showcase the artistic talent in our midst, and in a interactive, community building way.” He adds that, “When a community values and honors it’s artists I believe the community broadens and deepens in its cultural experience.”
