22 Nov 2017 - Edinburgh Folk Club - Dana and Susan Robinson return to Edinburgh Folk Club with the release of their new CD, The Angel’s Share. Their music explores rural America with elegant simplicity.

With an eye for vivid detail, Dana's songs are stories of the American landscape; a raconteur with a rich voice he's a living example of the American troubadour.
