“Goldsby quicksteps from bumptious to bawdy to trenchant with impeccable timing in this hilarious, truth-telling concert program. Brava!”
Betsy Burton, The King’s English, Salt Lake City, Utah

A pianist in lounges and lobbies around the world, Robin Meloy Goldsby tells her warm-hearted stories by linking people she has met with places she has played. Along the way, she connects the humanity of her audiences—princes and paupers, dreamers and doers, moguls, mobsters, wanna-bes, and has-beens—with the quiet soundtrack of her peripatetic, melodic life. Goldsby's autobiographical stories and essays deliver insights into the art and craft of piano playing, the merits of live music, and how the right song at the right moment can add color and depth to a drab, one dimensional world. Music, it turns out, connects us in unpredictable ways.

Robin Meloy Goldsby is the author of Piano Girl, Waltz of the Asparagus People, Rhythm, and Manhattan Road Trip. She has appeared on NPR’s All Things Considered and Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland. Goldsby 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. She currently performs about two hundred live piano gigs a year at Excelsior Hotel Ernst in Cologne, Germany, and tours internationally with her popular concert/reading program.
