Datebook: Afton : Cardinal Point Winery – Robin Wynn Band – July 7th


The Robin Wynn band brings their mix of rock, pop, and folk music to Cardinal Point Vineyard & Winery.
Saturday, July 7, from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Robin Wynn has been building a head of steam on the music scene in Central Virginia ever since the release of her debut CD “Oblivion” in 2004. Textured and varied, her music ranges from soulful ballads to biting anthems, creating a blend of rock, pop, and folk that grabs the ear and goes straight to the heart of every person in the room.

Whether playing solo, or accompanied by her six-piece band, Robin Wynn’s shows are marked with high energy and good spirits, with her distinctive, smooth-like-honey/sharp-as-a-tack vocals cresting the wave. With her ear for hooks, Robin writes music you swear you’ve heard before, yet is always unique and fresh, often drawing comparisons to Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williams at her most “Americana,” Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth) and Liz Phair at her rockingest.

A hard-working bunch of players, Robin and her band performed over a hundred shows up and down the east coast in 2006, gathering enthusiasts at every stop. Bandmates include Lea Calvani (Dirty Dishes) on percussion and vocals, John Allietta (Thrum, Naked Puritans) on drums, Clayton Avent (Six Day Bender) on cello and guitar, Blake Wheeler (Bleak, Goldenhour) on bass and vocals, and Mark Goldstein on guitar, keyboards, and vocals.

Spring 2007 marks the release of Robin Wynn’s latest studio achievement “A Few Dusty Miles,” a full-length CD of eleven new songs which includes such favorites from her recent tour dates as the sultry ballad “Bottle,” the quirky half-time rag “Sweet Sally,” and “Soldier,” an instant pop classic that will stay in your head for days – and is also available to listen on her page at
