Summer Nights Concert: Robin & Linda Williams Virginia-based Robin and Linda Williams are known for their rich harmonies and original songwriting rooted in the country/bluegrass/gospel tradition. They have gained widespread national prominence on Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion," as well as performing in their own right. For more than three decades, Robin and Linda have made it their mission to perform the music that they love, "a robust blend of bluegrass, folk, old-time and acoustic country that combines wryly observant lyrics with a wide-ranging melodicism." Today some might call it "Americana," but these two revered music masters were living and breathing this elixir 20 years before that label was turned into a radio format. Gates open at 6 p.m. and concerts begin at 7 p.m., rain or shine. Both the Aquarium and Botanic Garden will be open until 8 p.m. Hula hoop with the Ritzy Rouge Hula Hoop Troupe from 6-8 p.m. The Clan Tynker Family Circus will also join the fun with magic shows.
