Sea to Shining Sea is a departure from many of my other recordings in that all of the tracks (save for two) are arranged for ensemble. There are songs on this recording I grew up singing, and there are songs on this recording your parents grew up singing. (And I bet your grandparents and their parents knew many of them too.)
From the Civil War to the Gold Rush to the great wave of immigration in the 1900s, these songs chronicled journeys, hardships and love in music, as the singers of the songs discovered the beauty and the majesty of America. In this tradition, a few Robin Spielberg originals are mixed into what we call `Americana` or `Roots` selections, creating a true tapestry of American music. My hope is that as you enjoy this music, you will share it with the next generation of listeners.-Robin

"Home on the Range, Aura Lee, Danny Boy, In the Good Old Summer Time: these are melodies and songs that across generations and cultures and suggest a hand of comfort and connection from past to present. Spielberg brings her gift for melody to the well known songs on Sea to Shining Sea: A Tapestry of American Music, creating and recreating memories and melodies, presenting them without words and giving space for listeners to add their own stories." -Music Road
"A Musical Treasure. The music is filled with nostalgia and warmth.The quality of the arrangements is superb. This latest work of Robin Spielberg is one of the best releases the year." Score: 5/5 Stars -Reviewsnewage.com
"20 marvelous sonic memories that are timeless in/of their own, and pure magic in Ms. Spielberg’s talented hands, “Sea To Shining Sea” is an album that will spin over and over again on players between those shores – no doubt in my mind. I give it a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED” – Improvijazzation Nation
"As familiar and as sentimental as many of these songs are, in many ways they are sort of a melting pot of American music, a mix of folk songs and songs that were popular a hundred or so years ago, become part of the fabric of life in the United States. The result is a fine and flowing collection of well loved melodies along with three Spielberg originals, which fit in well with the well known pieces….As you gather with friends and family this winter season, this might be music you will want to bring along as well." – Kerry Dexter forPerceptive Travel
