The Set

“A creative trio playing roots music, led by the soulful voice and expressive guitar playing of Robin Brown who pulls out sounds that are not normally associated with the acoustic guitar in both regular and slide styles. The music weaves through blues, soul, funk, reggae, world music, rock and grunge. Sometimes echoing the sounds from the late 60’s psychedelic trip of Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin, feeding back until it crash lands into the here and now.”

Robin Brown: guitar & vocals
Tim Gedny: bass guitar & double bass
Sam Elliot: drums & percussion.
