Raised in a family of jazz musicians, Robin grew up singing and playing music. Her roots are in soul music, however the lure of poetic language, story telling, and simplicity led her to folk music. The combination of soulful vocals and simple guitar fingerpicking create a soothing sound. She received an honorable mention in the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour Competition, along with songwriters from all over the nation. Robin brings both a soul frequency with her electric guitar, and the Appalachian sound to CedarWing with her banjo.
Hope has played drums for the well known world roots rock band, Nahko & Medicine for the People (Nahko.com) for over 10 years; and with whom Hope toured internationally for many years. She has been playing world percussion for over twenty years; having studied with master drummers in Peru, Brazil, and Africa.
She has performed on stage with Michael Franti, Matisyahu, Wookiefoot, Trevor Hall, SOJA, & Mike Love.
Hope plays djembe, Bajo Cajon and hand percussion bringing a world groove to the CedarWing sound.
Hope is co-producer of ManaFest (ManaFestival.org) on Big Island of Hawaii.
