It’s rare to see a musical duo span decades.

Robin and Linda Williams have spent nearly four decades creating and playing music together.

At the Honoka’a People’s Theater on Saturday March 30, the pair will play songs from their latest album, These Old Dark Hills. These talented musicians make timeless melodies, cover enduring favorites and enjoy performing gospel and funk live.

Through the years, a total of 22 albums were recorded with guest artists such as Hank Williams, Sissy Spacek, Conway Twitty, Mary Chapin Carpenter and more.

This duo is known for their beautiful harmonies and gorgeous lyrical skill. Musicians that have recognized their songwriting prowess and covered some of their songs are Emmylou Harris, Tom T. Hall, George Hamilton IV, Tim & Mollie O’Brien, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Kathy Mattea and The Seldom Scene to name a few.
