A huge thank you to Killkenny Photography for these amazing shots from my last show.
“My heart is warmed as I think of our short time in Kenya. We’re home safely after a truly inspiring and amazing time in Nairobi.
Words greatly fail to express the honour it has been to share and exchange knowledge with you all, how your people have welcomed us with kindness and how we have been blessed to have been with you.
This experience will be cherished.
I am so thankful to both Robin Marcel Moustache and K.b. Amos for inviting us to be a part of the Nairobi Guitar Festival and host the Art of Guitar workshop at The Kenya Conservatoire of Music. This trip will be forever engraved into my soul and I thank you with all my being for all you both have done.
To everyone across the globe involved in making this happen, thank you so very much. Without your support we would never have been able to make it to Kenya.
To my wonderful friend and fellow musician, Tamla McMahon– you are beautiful inside and out and I am so fortunate to have shared this time with you. My deepest thanks for joining me on this adventure and here’s to many many more!”- Robyn
The time approaches- Kenya, get ready!
Soon I’ll be packing my bags, loading my gear, and catching a plane to Kenya for the Nairobi Guitar Festival in October this year where I’ll be hosting a workshop called: “Art of Guitar”. This is the first edition of an all ladies led workshop to be held at the The Kenya Conservatoire of Music in Nairobi. Joining me on my travels is my close friend and band-mate from Sistas of Metal, Tamla McMahon, who too plays a wicked guitar.
Together, the we will discuss a range of topics touching on music business, gear, playing techniques & composition. Having worked together with years of experience playing the guitar, we hope to bring an insightful and fun experience to the festival and look forward to seeing you all there.
Guests (both genders) are welcome to the workshop which is free & open to all and one can expect piece recitals by Maryolive, Rish, Zikki and Miriam on the day as well.
Join us for a moment in history and let’s change the world together!

News of her Elixir String endorsement earlier this month is still making waves and we’re left wondering what’s next?!
Written by: Kasima IRedtheBlack
A great partnership has been forged between Robyn and Elixir Strings this past week. We are very proud to announce that she is now an official endorsee and brand ambassador for Elixir Strings.
Robyn has been using Elixir Strings for over a decade and will continue to further the brand though her upcoming performances and projects both locally and internationally and you can look forward to a great adventure with her.
“I’m so excited to announce this! Elixir has been my string of choice for years and it’s so wonderful to be a part of the family.”
This follows a recent Ibanez Guitar endorsement as well and seems dreams can become a reality if you truly put your mind to it.
