Robin Wynn goes tour-mad
Charlottesville-based singer-songwriter Robin Wynn has announced what has to be the most ambitious touring schedule of any locally-based musical act. In the next two months, her manager reports, she'll play 25 shows in Virginia, North Carolina, West Virginia and Maryland.
"These are really good venues, like the Tobacco Company in Richmond," says the manager, Steve Momorella. She's supporting latest EP, The Broken Sky, which has earned some notice in the Hook and put her in the finals of a major regional song-writing contest.
Besides the exposure, Momorella says Wynn has moved up on the business side of her art. "She's starting to play gigs in the $500 to $1,000 mark, whereas a couple of months ago she was playing Atomic Burrito for $100," says Momorella. "She's really starting to make a living at it."
