ROCKIN' ROBIN: NOT JUST ANOTHER FOLK SINGER

WRITTEN BY PHAEDRA PINKSTON robin_forweb.jpg

Singer/songwriter Robin Greenstein is keeping folk music alive in New York City. Originally a Native of Long Island NY, Greenstein was taught the guitar at age 11 and later the banjo at 17.

Inspired by legendary musicians like Joni Mitchell and Simon and Garfunkel, the musician eventually enrolled in Suny Stony Brook University where she emphasized in classical guitar.

In later years, this passionate artist became a full time accomplished songwriter/ musician and was signed to Bob Dylan's publishing company and has since performed at Madison Square Garden as well as outside the U.S. (like Germany and Japan).

When Greenstein performs clearly she is a lyrical aficianado combining music of many genres such as jazz, country, pop, and rock.

Is there any advice Greenstein would like to pass along to all those struggling/aspiring musicians out there? "Keep working your craft! Both musicality and songwriting."
