"Songwriter Showcase" Robert Thornton Kent at The Auslander

My Guest: Robert Thornton Kent


“Described as a "real life gypsy and romantic", Robert's music always reflects a passion for living, travel, romance and love that lives in the songs that he sings. He has shared the stage with Brooks Hunnicutt, Leo Kottke, Beppe Gambetta, and some of the most respected musicians in the world. . His schedule has him regularly performing coast-to-coast at festivals,colleges, universities, coffeehouses, house concerts, bars, private events and anywhere there's music. His style is reflective of many incredible artists such as Bob Dylan, James Taylor, Gordon Lightfoot, Townes VanZandt, Nick Drake and those he personally learned from like Leo Kottke, Patrick Sky, Dave Van Ronk, Danny Smith, Jeff Espina and Stuart Mossman. "In his early years he often found himself hitching rides and jumping freight trains across the USA, Canada and Mexico as he chased dreams and apprenticed himself to many great folk musicians while living life his way."”
