SFS is delighted to present American Songsters: Larry Hanks & Deborah Robins in a special Sunday concert, with guest Steven Strauss.

Larry Hanks, is known as a “folksingers’ folksinger”, who has been delighting audiences for over 50 years with his deep bass voice, sparse acoustic guitar accompaniments, and acclaimed Jew’s Harp playing.  Hanks is probably best known for his classic “folk” song, “Apple Picker’s Reel”.

Larry can be heard on recordings of David Grisman, Jody Stecher & Kate Brislin, Mike Seeger, The New Lost City Ramblers, and many others; and has performed with Utah Phillips, Gordon Bok, Fred Holstein, Martyn Wyndham-Read, Elizabeth Cotten, Malvina Reynolds, Geoff Muldaur, and many more.

Now performing with wife and musical partner, Deborah Robins, the two are becoming even more beloved for an eclectic repertoire of American traditional, work, blues, and political songs; the music of Utah Phillips, Larry Penn, Leadbelly, Sam  Hinton, Stephen Foster; and others in the pantheon of American vernacular/working people’s music. Actively touring Europe, the UK, and US, Hanks & Robins bring a warm and homey stage presence, most comfortable in creating an intimate musical evening, long remembered by all in attendance.

 

Steven Strauss  (http://www.songwriter.com/strauss/index.php) is an undisputed master of the ukulele as a melody-forward solo lead (as opposed to solely rhythm).   His influence can be felt far and wide amongst West Coast acolytes, who clamor to hear an eclectic mix of jazz and traditional standards, played with precision in his sparse and thoughtful arrangements.

 

Advance tickets are available from https://sfs-larryhanks.brownpapertickets.com or 1-800-838-3006, and at our concerts prior to the show. Ticket sales begin approximately 60 days before show date.

American Songsters Larry Hanks and Deborah Robins sing old songs. Known as a folksingers folksinger, Hanks has been performing to delighted festival and club audiences (Fox Hollow, Mariposa, The Portable Folk Festival, The Old Town School of Folk Music, et al) for over 50 years. Now touring with his wife and musical partner, Larrys mellifluous bass-baritone voice combines with the eclectic close harmonies of Deborahs resonant alto, bringing back to life a large repertoire of songs describing trials and traditions of American life. On the heels of their warmly-received 1st duo album, “No Hiding Place”, and 2nd acclaimed duo CD chock full of “brand spankin’ OLD” songs, “OLD DAYS”, they proudly present their 3rd duo CD, The Wheel of Time –including familiar favorites and many surprises. For the legendary San Francisco Bay Area favorite, Larry Hanks, this tour commemorates 50 years of live performance.

“This is why I got into folk music to begin with. [Hanks & Robins] are the best live folk music performance in recent memory!”  — Michael Cooney, One Man Folk Festival 

Steven Strauss is an undisputed master of the ukulele as a melody-forward SOLO lead (as opposed to solely rhythm).  Presenting the instrument as a unique voice, audiences “forget they’re listening to a ukulele”, as his precision brings a transcendence to the instrument. His influence can be felt far and wide amongst West Coast acolytes, who clamor to hear an eclectic mix of jazz and traditional standards, played with precision in his sparse and thoughtful arrangements.
