Audience Participation…Fun…The Healing Power of Music
Andrew Roblin may be the only musician around who actually gets audiences to grunt, yodel and strut. He has strutted his way through more than 4000 performances, spreading the joy of healthy, participatory music.
Andrew inspires seniors to sing to “Day-O” and clap to “Short’nin’ Bread.” He rouses them to lift up their hands and grunt to “All Shook Up.” Andrew teaches how to yodel. He shows people with all degrees of mobility how to do the Philadelphia Mummer’s strut to “Golden Slippers.” Andrew’s songs trigger reminiscing, too. With movement, fellowship, music and memories, Andrew’s program is a powerful, healthy experience for audiences of all ages–and especially for seniors.
Along the way Andrew tells the stories of his varied instruments, how they came to America and how they became part of his life.
