    Concert Review

    Anticipating the creative beauty of Robert Dillon's performances has always been a joy for me. Collectively watching how he designs his set-up and how meticulously his body and hands are positioned before each composition expresses a continuity of form within himself and his fingerstylings.

    Robert's presence is his greatest introduction to his music. Mild in manner, yet expressive in delivery. Each performance reveals developed textures that can only be created through the union between musician and his innate understanding of his instrument.

    There is always a sense of quiet within the audience, but not so much as to listen, but to feel.

    The mystery of the how and the why between fingers and strings makes Robert Dillon an object of passion's greatest desire...having.
