SMART BETS: Dana and Susan Robinson

On- and off-stage couple Dana and Susan Robinson are based in Marshall, N.C., and have been a part of the local roots music scene for years. But their roots aesthetic goes back even further — before he was a WNC singer-songwriter, Dana lived off the grid in Vermont and founded a popular bakery/music venue. This year, the couple released American Hornpipe, a collection that draws “the listener close to the heart of Appalachia with fresh harmonies and impeccable craftsmanship.” The duo performs at The Emerald Lounge on Friday, Dec. 28. Eric Lambert & Friends and Dark Water Rising also take the stage. 9 p.m., $5. http://www.emeraldlounge.com
