A new concert series is about to enter its second season in Cranbrook, with a well-known Canadian folk singer appearing at the Studio Stage Door.

Mike and Corinna Robinson are entering their second season bringing in musical acts to perform for audiences in Cranbrook, with three shows scheduled for the winter and spring of 2015.

The couple have long affiliation with the downtown music scene. Mike cut his teeth on live folk and roots music, accompanying his father to performances hosted by Gord and Jill Johnston at the Swing Street coffee house in the 1990s.  More recently Mike and Corinna enjoyed attending the popular Beannick Concert series hosted by Gord Johnston and Terry Miller.

However, with the recent retirement of that series coming shortly after Mike and Corinna’s first hosted performance, it only seemed timely to take on a more formal event, Mike said.

“As before, the concerts will be at the Studio Stage Door,” Mike said, adding that the popularity of these shows means the possibility larger venues like the Key City Theatre may be explored for the future.”
