Most of the guests Robin invited, but theres a few surprises thrown in that Robin loved and you will, too --

Tom Rush, Daniel Cainer, Rod MacDonald, and David Roth perform brand new songs. Marilyn Rea Beyer, host of "The Midnight Special" every Saturday night on WFMT in Chicago does an original poetry reading. Megon McDonough sings one of the classic tunes from her repertoire that now spans 50 years. Lisa Klotz sings the brand new anthem, "Ukrainian Now," written by John McCutcheon and Tom Paxton. You'll learn how Buskin & Batteau unwittingly jumpstarted the career of the trio, "Brother Sun." You'll hear a brand new song by an artist who is probably new to you, David LaMotte, the best pandemic song I've heard to date.  And with the notes below you can jump around, take your time, play some songs over again.

For any of you who attended, you know the concert raised over $1400 for Robin's tuition fund, that he is splitting with the Sirius Animal Rescue Charity in Kyiv.  

53 years after his class graduated, Robin returned to his alma mater, studied hard, passed his exams and today walked with the class of 2022 to receive his college degree.  Let's all be inspired by his example.
