Event description

Description

Rob Laurens is an award-winning singer/songwriter hailing from Cambridge, MA.

"Rob Laurens culls his naturalistic ballads from the fertile soil of American folk tradition, but his intimate, incisive lyrics embody the best instincts of the contemporary songwriter movement." --Scott Alarik, Boston Globe

"With a unique sense of phrasing and a strong, lyrical style, Rob Laurens writes songs that tell real stories - in the big sense of the word. He is an insightful and provocative songwriter." --Dick Pleasants, host, "The Folk Heritage" WGBH 89.7 FM Boston

"Rob Laurens has the rare ability to write songs that seem like they've always been there. When he steps on stage, you're drawn into the atmosphere that he creates from the first chord. Witty, engaging, thoughtful, and whimsical — it's all there, held together by taste, discernment, and an intriguing, original guitar style." --Dave Palmater, host, Folk Radio WUMB 91.9 FM

Rob has won the New Folk Award for Songwriting at both the Kerrville Folk Festival (TX) and its sister festival, The Columbia River Festival (WA). He has returned to play the main stage at these and many other festivals, including the Strawberry, High Sierra, and Napa Valley Festivals in California. He tours both east and west coasts, playing such clubs as The Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, California, and Club Passim in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
