music is clearly in Robin's blood; his dad played in a number
of successful local bands in the 60s, 70s and 80s, including "The
Bisley Brothers" and "Dance Sound".
A guitarist for over
twenty years, Robin co-founded "Friends In Low Places"
with Robert, and has also appeared with a Punk / Ska band, and
a Rock & Roll band.
Robin says "I first found my love of entertaining
when I played guitar for my friends in the Bridge common room
at Richard Huish, but it was several years before I had the audacity
to charge money for having that much fun".
plays a Takamine 6-string, Crafter mandolin, Yamaha fretless bass
and sometimes uses an eBow. He uses a Shure SM-58 microphone and
controls the loop pedal which provides the rhythmic foundation
of songs such as "Black Horse & The Cherry Tree",
"New Shoes" and "I Want to Break Free".
has also recently built a Mandocello which is played at some gigs.
