Sun, Dec 13: Bob Thompson’s Joy to Lewisburg

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Sound of the Town, Susanna Robinson

I’m not much of a Christmas person. People who know me know that Christmas is hard for me. I awaken to snowy fields where I take on the weight of the world. I look through the lacy frosted windows and I miss everyone I’ve lost. I awaken from fitful dreams of travel and lost shoes, […]

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Sound of the Town, Susanna Robinson

So, as I’m writing this on the hottest day of the year so far, coming down to the last-minute wire for column submission, yet I feel the need to begin my column with a Haiku written from one of my day jobs. I challenge all LBSPY readers to submit a summer haiku that sums up […]

Fri. July 17-19: Life w/ Folks at FolkLife Festival

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Sound of the Town, Susanna Robinson

It was the Appalachian South Folklife Center in Pipestem, WV, aka “The Don West Farm”, and it represented peace, community, and creative thoughts and […]

By: LBSPY / Category: Around the Town, Blog, Susanna Robinson

A year later, here we are, continuing to honor the tradition of the celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy. And while last year’s event brought emotions and passionate opinions from many sides of the issues at hand, sometimes angry, sometimes hurtful, yet sometimes kind and optimistic, I still feel that we can work through […]

SOUND OF THE TOWN: EILEEN KRAMER – 100 YEARS OF DANCING W/ THE WIND. BY SUSANNA ROBINSON-KENGA

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Sound of the Town, Susanna Robinson

One hundred years on this earth. 1914 was the year of Eileen Kramer’s birth. And still she moves gracefully though her days, now back again in her native Australia. 1914, a year so far beyond what we can fathom to have come into existence that I could scarcely imagine what the world was like, what […]

Sat. July 26: Lewisburg Music Festival

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Sound of the Town, Susanna Robinson

The season of festivals, mountain music and otherwise, is upon us, the Summer Solstice (when the planet’s tilt is most inclined toward its star), passing by, lingering, with its longest day of the year, its many sun-worshippers, music-devotees, dancers-in-fields, singers-on-porches; these days of festivals venerate the season in all its glory. The solstice, recognized all […]

SOUND OF THE TOWN: THE DIVINE ART OF DUET. BY SUSANNA KENGA.

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Sound of the Town, Susanna Robinson

The end of season concert at Carnegie Hall, a Friday night, I’m tired from working, but I know I’ll be inspired, so in I go, get my pass, take my seat, and wait for what can only be described as a gentle, humorously pleasing, and enchanting musical evening. I waited, knowing we would soon be […]

March 28: The Sea The Sea at Carnegie Hall

By: LBSPY / Category: Blog, Sound of the Town, Susanna Robinson

Today I saw a seagull, lost and bewildered, in the parking lot of the Brier Inn. The snowstorm had confused her. The winter had thrown her off course. She flew, the sun on her wings, while she looked for something familiar, while she yearned for warm beaches and a glimpse of the ocean. She was […]
