Tonight returning to The Barns with concert virtuoso chops, clever folk farces and intimate acoustic balladry is Buskin & Batteau.
David Buskin and Robin Batteau began making music together in the 1970s and became a local Boston-area hit as part of the Cambridge folk scene.
Some of their first gigs took place at an intimate Harvard Square venue once known as Club 47, a folk club that booked Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Richie Havens, and Tom Rush in the ’60s.
The duo cut their advertising teeth in the ’80s, penning jingles for companies like Burger King, Budweiser, and Amtrak, while also writing songs for other artists such as Judy Collins, Bette Midler, and Peter, Paul and Mary.
Buskin and Batteau’s current project, Love Remembered, Love Forgot, is the follow-up to the 2010 album Nouveau Retro.
“We complement each other so well, each of us has as much fun accompanying the other as we do singing our own songs.”—Robin Batteau
