This week we continue our look and listen of area music artists. For the next several days we’ll be hearing the music of Robin Wynn. Robin’s been building a head of steam on the music scene in Central Virginia ever since the release of her debut CD â€œOblivionâ€ in 2004. You’ve seen and heard Robin at many of the wine events here in Nelson or over at Rapunzel’s. This week you can hear her right here. Scroll to the bottom of today’s weathercast for more on Robin and be sure to listen to her music at the end of today’s weather.

One of Many Brush Fires Sunday in Nelson County
Sunday’s High / Low at NCL-Nelson County Life Magazine in the Rockfish Valley : 13Â°/42Â°
Sunday’s High / Low at NCL-Wintergreen Nature Foundation on Devil’s Knob @ Wintergreen Mountain : 40Â°/24Â°
Sunday was a rock and roll day across Nelson County and much of Central Virginia. High winds and very dry conditions caused a major outbreak of brush and forest fires across the area. In all over 70 fires had been reported in Central Virginia and at least a dozen of those were in Nelson alone. After dark the winds finally began easing up, but remained gusty well into the overnight hours. Our NCL-Tiger Fuel Weathernet Station in Lovingston reported a 50 MPH wind gust around 1:30 PM Sunday. Up on the mountain at NCL-Wintergreen Nature Foundation Devil’s Knob, winds gusted frequently between 35-50 MPH.
Overnight lows bottomed out reaching the single digits in many locations. Monday will be a cold day only reaching the upper 30’s to near 40Â° in the valley and around 30Â° on the mountains. By mid week we moderate a bit with temps back in the upper 40’s to near 50Â° valley – and lower 40’s mountains. Rain is in the forecast Tuesday night, with a chance for rain/snow on the mountains.

Whether playing solo, or accompanied by her six-piece band, Robin Wynnâ€™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 youâ€™ve heard before, yet is always unique and fresh, often drawing comparisons to Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williams at her most â€œAmericana,â€ 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 Wynnâ€™s latest studio achievement â€œA Few Dusty Miles,â€ a full-length CD of eleven new songs which includes such favorites from her recent tour dates as the sultry ballad â€œBottle,â€ the quirky half-time rag â€œSweet Sally,â€ and â€œSoldier,â€ an instant pop classic that will stay in your head for days â€“ and is also available to listen on her page at www.myspace.com/robinwynn
