Uncle Eddie & Robin

Unitarian Universalist Musicians

Greetings and Namaste!

We are the musical singer-songwriter husband-wife duet, "Uncle Eddie & Robin", and we would like to work with you to present a musical service and/or coffeehouse performance at your Unitarian Universalist congregation.

“Not Your Typical Old Folkies,” we have been described as "...a dynamic musical duet with a taste of the old and a flair for the new. Their energy belies their age, and the breadth of their life experience makes for a rich and rewarding musical evening. This husband-wife team combines their voices in stunning, tight harmonies on songs that pack a punch, and their musical chemistry is undeniable and their sound is unmistakable. With a social consciousness and a flair for incorporating new styles, they are the perfect combo of old and new West Virginia music."

Nationally we have appeared at many UU congregations, notably in Youngstown, OH, Morgantown and Charleston, WV, Ligonier, PA, Corning, NY, Littleton, CO, Salisbury, NC, and Rockland, MA. In our new home state of Florida we have appeared in Bradenton, Palatka, Jacksonville, and St. Augustine. We can provide anything from a topical presentation to a complete "soup to nuts" Sunday service.

Robin is a lifelong Unitarian Universalist, and is ex-officio past President at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of St. Augustine where she currently chairs the Program Team. She is also past President and served as an officer and trustee at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Ohio Valley. She holds a BA in Psychology and Sociology from Hunter College, and a Master's in Social Work from Adelphi University, as well as post graduate study in Social Work and Public Health at the University of Pittsburgh.

Ed “Uncle Eddie” Mahonen, “banjo player, raconteur, and all around old dude” is an icon in the Appalachian music scene. He worked as a staff musician on the legendary Wheeling Jamboree as well as a member of several regionally touring bluegrass, country and jam bands. His style incorporates elements of bluegrass, rock, and folk, which he has shaped into a unique and original blend which he terms “plunk rock.” West Virginia’s “Graffiti” Magazine said Ed has been, “a force in West Virginia music for over thirty years.” He chose Unitarian Universalism as an adult and has been an active member of UU congregations in the Ohio Valley and St Augustine, Florida.

Together, Uncle Eddie & Robin have performed music and been active in various social, political, and  environmental issues. They were present at Occupy Wall Street, the Standing Rock action opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the People's Climate March in NYC. They founded the Wheeling Water Warriors and successfully opposed a toxic fracking wastewater plant on the Ohio River. They organized the Great Ohio River Relay as part of this effort.

May you never thirst,
Uncle Eddie and Robin
