Robbie Clement was born near the Tomorrow River in the Tomorrow River
country of Wisconsin. He was raised in a musical family and began
making music at an early age. Folks who knew him back then say Robbie
was always entertaining. Audiences say he was born to be on stage.
is a variety folk entertainer who’s “have fun, will travel” lifestyle
makes him a man you don’t meet every day. His dynamic performances
combine music, comedy and storytelling with guitar, banjo, dulcimer,
limberjack, jawharp, and audience accompaniment. Robbie’s ability to
share his music with an irresistible sense of fun attracts people to
him like a modern-day pied piper. Audiences love him for his ability to
sing a song “inside-out,” so that they can see and feel what he is
singing about. Wherever he performs, Robbie makes music magic by
sharing it in the time-honored way: friend to friend and heart to
heart. His upbeat songs and unique brand of “creative silliness” have
made him a special favorite of children throughout Tomorrow River
Country (and beyond!).
Robbie’s songs have been showcased on
many Midwestern radio and television stations, and been aired on Public
Radio across North America. He is the author of an internationally
published series of guitar and banjo books, as well as a book of
original songs. Robbie is the founder of Tomorrow River Music, an
artists’ collective and recording company.
