VSP Presents: Robinson & Rohe

Saturday December 8th at 7:30 pm

Tickets $15 advance / $20 day of show

We are so excited to announce our second collaboration with Valley Stage productions, who are bringing the inimitable Robinson & Rohe to the classroom on December 8th! This duo has been touring their “Longest Winter” for the past 10 years, and we are thrilled to able to help host it here on the farm.

About the Concert:

The Christmas story is a cultural inheritance that belongs to whoever claims it. If it is the Church, then the Church will tell the story. If it is the Corporate Advertisers, the Corporate Advertisers will sell the story. But if it is the Artists, the Bards, the Rabblerousers, then it is they who will create the story anew. 

A crowd of friends and neighbors has gathered on one of the longest nights of the year. All is warm and cozy inside, while the cold winter wind blows just outside the door. The clatter of wine glasses and mugs filled to the brim with hot cider gives way to silence. And from that radiant silence emerges a song…


Robinson & Rohe got its start singing the ancient Christmas carols we love. We sing these carols every year to wrest this influential story from the grasp of the despots and the department stores. We assert that Christmas is a celebration of love, a welcoming of the light. It is about the beauty of one child only as much as it is about the beauty of all beings. Christmas is a rejection of the greed that caused an innkeeper to turn a pregnant woman out into the night, the hatred that caused a jealous king to order mass infanticide. Christmas is an embrace of the green, wild world we share. It is an opportunity to sing together, to break bread together. The inheritance of stories and songs is ours to reshape and pass on, just as those before us did. This is the story we tell.

Tickets will be $20 on the day of show.

Show on Saturday November 17th at 7:00 pm.

A year after the “Mother Lion” release tour, May Erlewine returns to B&B Farm!

Some people might call May Erlewine “Michigan’s Songbird”, but her songs have traveled far beyond her home state. One of the most prolific and passionate songwriters of her generation, May’s music has touched the hearts of people all over the world. Her words have held solace for weary hearts, offered a light in the darkness and held a lot of space for the pain and joy of being alive in these times. When she starts to sing, there’s no way around it. Welcome to the moment, everyone. 

Quantity:
Snag Your Tickets!

Raised in a family rich with art and music, May began writing songs and playing them for the people at a very young age. Her journeys have taken her all over the world, from street corners to renowned stages, May has performed for all walks of life. In her travels Erlewine came to know the land and the pulse of the people. Her songs show a very real connection and concern with everyday folk.

May pulls from a wide variety of sounds and influences to create her unique musical landscape. You’ll hear traditional folk roots, old time country swing, soul and rock and roll but mostly she’s inspired by the hearts of the people and the one in her chest. This music is about feeling and it’s about telling life’s stories.

May is a member of the Earthwork Music Collective, a group of independent artists who share resources and talents to raise both community and self-awareness, along with facilitating and encouraging original music in the state of Michigan. Earthwork was created as a means to form a viable alternative path to the conventional music industry. Through collaboration, the collective strives to incorporate efforts of environmental advocacy, social justice, creative empowerment and community building into the core functioning of a musical profession.

We at the farm are so excited, honored, and proud to be able to host May and her music in the gorgeous Music for Sprouts classroom. This is sure to be another truly special evening of community and music, and we look forward to seeing you there!
