An evening of original songs by classically-trained “barefoot cellist” April Reed-Cox and guitarist Oren Robinson.
Join us for an evening of original songs by classically-trained “barefoot cellist” April Reed-Cox and guitarist Oren Robinson, down from their homestead on Twisted Maple Farm.
Oren and April have been the house band for many years on Mike Miclon’s The Early Evening Show, a comedic Maine-based variety show, and have shared the stage with Carole Noonan, Tricky Britches, Molly Gawler, and more.
During the quarantine Oren and April took time to focus on this duo project and develop a subtle and intuitive delivery style for their heartfelt and honest songs.
Oren and April live in a home that they built from lumber that they milled on their Thomas Bandsaw Mill. They have a small-scale fiber farm, endeavor to grow as much of their own food as possible, and a jar of canned tomatoes or experimental garlic scape pesto is not an uncommon gift from these two.
April Reed-Cox has been playing cello for over a quarter century. Her primary genre has been classical, and she holds a Masters degree in Music Performance. She has performed and competed throughout the country, and currently performs with the Bangor Symphony and Maine ProMusica. Since moving to Maine in 2009 she has expanded her skill set, and has recorded and toured with several Maine Folk Artists including Putnam Smith, Ashley Storrow, Jud Caswell, Heather Hardy and many more. She teaches private lessons at Bay Chamber Community Music School and Woodsound Studio. She is also an avid hand-spinner and keeps a small flock of sheep at her homestead, Twisted Maple Farm.
Oren Robinson is a music teacher and singer with a folkie soul. He plays guitar, but occasionally he’ll pull some random instrument out of his collection.
