It’s been a great week for the umbrella of musical genres known as Americana…the movement was the subject of a PBS Special airing this past week (Nashville 2.0 – The Rise of Americana) as well as FINALLY getting to see highlights of the 2013 Americana Music Association Awards Ceremony performances at the Ryman Auditorium on PBS’s Austin City Limits.  Diana Linn was at The Ryman that evening back in September and will be featuring many of those same artists on this week’s show.  Also spotlighted this week is the band Sam Robas from Denmark that creates some of the best songwriting and musical interpretation you will ever hear in Americana.  Diana Linn has always said it matters not where the artist hails from….if it honors what is known as “Roots” Music, we will embrace you in the Americana/Dianacana family.  Born and raised in Denmark, and with permanent residence status in five countries on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, Sam Robas has always been involved with the music scene, working for major record labels, independent releases, playing live or in the studio. From designing, building and operating a recording studio on a Caribbean island to being a tour guide in Nashville, New Orleans and Memphis, translating books and lecturing about Deep South U.S. history, civil rights, culture and music, Sam Robas has always been writing songs about common life and every day experiences, mixed with hopes and expectations of what’s around the next corner.
