Robyn Archer completes her trilogy of performances at City Recital Hall. Following the success of Que Reste-t-il and Dancing on the Volcano, comes The (Other) Great American Songbook which offers a different portrait of America over time through song covering everything from the Civil War and The Great Depression to many of its citizens’ favourite vices. There are songs about poverty, politics, drunkenness and desire. Accompanied by longtime colleagues Michael Morley (piano) and George Butrumlis (accordion), Robyn (vocals and guitar) delights with an epic range of song, including music by Stephen Foster, Rodgers and Hart, Bob Dylan, P!nk and the odd Broadway hit.
