Robin Williamson would surely have a place in any folk music hall of fame.

Few performers have had such influence as this man - and fewer still remain at the top of their game after 50 fabulous years.

He's also an important part of our history - when he first played for us nearly a quarter of a century ago, he drew a crowd that stands as a record for the Kalamazoo.

As founder of the ground-breaking Incredible String Band, with its mystic mix of folk, jazz and Eastern sounds, he fired the imagination of many a musician. Robert Plant and Paul McCartney cite the twice Grammy-nominated Williamson as an influence.
This legendary singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and story-teller is also a brilliant exponent of the Celtic harp - restoring it, as he says, to its ancient role as "spontaneous accompaniment to the spoken word."

On it you may hear traditional Celtic songs thought lost in the mists of time. Or a Pink Floyd cover. Or even a re-working of a Jerry Lee Lewis country classic.

That's Robin for you. . A true original. And, as a BBC reviewer said:"They don't make them like him any more."
