    • Darstellende Kunst

“Music has never been essential for keeping people alive, but it has always been essential for helping us feel alive.  Live music connects us in an impeccably human way.” Robin’s tribute to freelance musicians, doing their best during challenging times to feed their families, stay on track, and keep the music playing. Featuring "Blackbird" from Goldsby's Magnolia album.
Sometimes poignant and often hilarious, Robin Meloy Goldsby, host of The Piano Girl Podcast ,reveals the comedies, tragedies, and mundane miracles witnessed from the business side of the Steinway.
A pianist in lounges and lobbies around the world, Goldsby tells her stories by connecting people she has met with places she has played. Along the way she discovers the human side, for better or worse, of her audiences—mobsters and moguls, the down-and-out and downright scary, and ordinary people dealing with life in extraordinary ways. Her stories deliver insights into the art and craft of piano playing—and inspiring lessons in life—as she pursues her dreams on her own terms.
Robin Meloy Goldsby is the author of Piano Girl; Waltz of the Asparagus People; Rhythm; and Manhattan Road Trip.  She has appeared on National Public Radio’s All Things Consideredand NPR's Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland. Robin is a Grammy-nominated lyricist. She is a Steinway Artist and cultural ambassador with artistic ties to both Europe and the USA; her newest solo piano album, Home and Away, launched at Buckingham Palace in November, 2017, at a gala hosted by HRH, the Prince of Wales, in honor of In Kind Direct, an organization that encourages corporate giving for social good.
Robin currently performs plays about 150 live piano gigs a year at Excelsior Hotel Ernst in Cologne, Germany, and tours internationally with her popular concert/reading program. 
"Goldsby has a wicked sense of humor and a keen eye for the absurd. Bighearted, funny, truly eye-opening memoir." Publishers Weekly Starred Review
