From her unmistakable accent to her songs’ references to faith, family and the Appalachian landscape, Robinella could only have come from East Tennessee. Robin and former bandmate, Cruz Contreras, formed the core of Robinella and the CCstringband in the late 90’s. Robinella continues to make beguiling music that has no name. The acclaimed singer-songwriter has had folks struggling with descriptions as long as she has been making music. She has slipped in and out of genres ranging from bluegrass to jazz, always dodging labels.
