Robin Rothschild is a singer, song writer and guitarist who started at the age of twelve (many many years ago) and started her music career by singing and performing with her three younger sisters under the name of “Rosefelt Sisters”. Since the 1960’s she has played and studied with many acclaimed musicians such as Guy Clark and Peter Gardner. She has since gone on to perform and record with other performing artists such as Frankie Avalon, Howie Epstein, Leslie West, and was an opening act for John Prine. She has received honorable mentions for many of her songs and recordings from the Mid Atlantic Song Competition and took second place at the Winnfield Bluegrass Festival. Robin loves to sing in many different languages; including English, French, Russian, Italian, Spanish, Hebrew and Yiddish and has enjoyed playing in many places around the world. Now with grandchildren, she has passed the talent and love for music to three generations. She believes that this is the true nature of folk music; a story passed down from generation to generation, constantly evolving and growing. Although this is Robin’s third album, this is by far her favorite. The highlight of all her years in music has been making this album with her daughter Chloe, son Elie, granddaughter Zahra and her dear friends Jeff Scroggins(national bluegrass banjo champion 8 years standing) and his son Tristan Scroggins (mandolin virtuoso). The artwork for “Robins Rockin Children’s Music” was designed by Robins other granddaughter Sofia. They are truly a family that loves to be creative! Enjoy!

Robin helped rock Monroe Elementary, (alma mater of Jerry Garcia!) bilingual class for a sing-a-long for slightly scary and funny halloween songs!
Check out our new video — Rockin to the Beat. It’s the first single from my upcoming album: Rockin’ Robins Children’s Songs. The video features three generations of my family. My son Elie (ukelele), daughter Chloe (banjo) and my granddaughter Zahra (ukelele) are all integral to this song and my music. Also featured are my friend and music buddy Jeff Scroggins, on banjo, and his son Tristan on mandolin.
