The musical duo Robin and Linda Williams visited the Newsplex for an in studio performance. They played a song off of their new album, which is set to be released next month.

The song performed is called “Tessie May,” which is about a dog they adopted from the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA.

“Of all the things we do, playing live in front of an audience is the thing we do best and the thing we love most,” said Robin Williams, singer.

Robin and Linda Williams will embark on a mini tour throughout Virginia to promote the release of their new album titled“These Old Dark Hills.”

“I think we just try to bring energy, our music is energetic naturally I guess, we’re energetic players, but we also want to bring the audience with us,” said Linda Williams.

They will also be performing at the Mockingbird in Staunton, Saturday, July 28 at 8:30 p.m. for a CD release party. Tickets for the event cost $20.00. To learn more about the group visit their website.
