Robin Greene, Richey Bellinger & Friends Songwriter Showcase
Robin calls Oregon and Alaska home, writing and sharing her stories of adventure, love, loss and all of the celebrations of life.
"Robin Greene -Jacobs is a Northwest treasure. She combines sultry vocals with combinations of wild finger picking and rhythmic guitar and mandolin work. Her style is reminiscent of Bonnie Raitt mixed with a little Emmy Lou while still remaining current and easy to listen to. Greene combines the story telling of a true troubadour with the heartache of a well travelled soul. Her craft will find its way into your heartstrings first listen"( anchorage daily news)
Richey Bellinger's introduction to folk music began while listening (with his father) to WFMT Chicagos renowned Midnight Special radio show in the 1960's. He was exposed to the likes of Bob Dylan, John Prine, Steve Goodman, Odetta, Pete Seeger, Leadbelly, Doc Watson, and many others of the early folk music scene. The Beatles also hit the airwaves around that time and changed the music world with every new album. Later influences were James Taylor, Jackson Browne, CSN&Y, and Joni Mitchell.
After childhood piano lessons, Richey really got started making his own music when his folks got him his first guitar at age 14. He started learning songs by ear from records and the radio, and also began to write original songs while still a teenager. Fast forward forty years, and Richey now has three solo albums completed (Letting Go, One Thing Certain, and Tree In The Garden). Johnsmith says of Tree In The Garden; Your CD is first class in all ways. From the gorgeous art work, to your vocals, the songwriting, and the production.
Richey performs his music around the Portland area solo, and also with fellow songwriters Matt Meighan, Kelly Bosworth, HaleLupe, Dale Jones, and Ann Heyen, to name a few. His songs are thoughtful, personal stories of love and longing, sung with passion and accompanied by his sweet finger picking guitar style.
Other Special Guests TBD.
