Uncle Eddie and Robin, “Not Your Usual Old Folkies”, are a dynamic musical duet with a taste of the old and a flair for the new. Their energy belies their age, and the breadth of their life experience makes for a rich and rewarding musical evening. This husband-wife team combines guitars and banjo with their voices in stunning, tight harmonies on songs that pack a punch, their musical chemistry is undeniable, and their sound is unmistakable. You will laugh, and cry, and laugh again.

Designed for anyone involved in the church in any way
Last year we had 110 people from 13 congregations, and folks raved about how great it was to be together. It helped all our Leadership Development Councils offer support to current volunteers and cultivate new ones. This is our chance to do that again!
Thanks in advance for spreading the word.
