The heart of Robert’s presentations is about education, but always presented in an entertaining way. He performs on a variety of instruments, some antique and some newly made in the historical manner. Over the years he has performed at a variety of historic sites and museums, and has both educated and entertained audiences and visitors from around the globe. The setting and event always frames the nature of the performance, and Robert brings instruments appropriate to the venue. He has spent decades studying the variety of music that existed in early America, and his melodies and songs reflect that diversity. He offers the rare opportunity to hear what those ancestors heard, sometimes on the very instruments they used. For outdoor events, he uses a small self-contained wagon. It is both visually appealing and eminently practical, as it enables Robert to set up wherever his talents are needed.
