“Songs and Stories 2” Concert Comes to San Miguel Playhouse


By Doug Robinson

On Tuesday, November 13, an all-new version of the concert series known as “Songs and Stories,” which debuted in April, returns to the San Miguel Playhouse for one night only.

The concert highlights three diverse songwriters—Jesse Harris, Todd Clouser and myself, Doug Robinson, as we perform our newest and best material in an intimate setting.

I’d go to this concert even if I weren’t performing—I love to hear songwriters talk about their creative process and then share the end results. And I happen to know that after each artist has played his own mini-set, we will join forces for another wonderful jam session.

Once again, multiple Grammy-award-winning singer/songwriter Jesse Harris is our headliner.

If you don’t recognize Jesse’s name, you’ll certainly recognize some of his music. He has composed not only Norah Jones’ lovely break-out hit “Don’t Know Why” but also a few others on her debut album.  He’s also performed on Late Night with David Letterman and has had his work performed by everyone from Willie Nelson to The Black Keys.

Todd Clouser, whom NPR has called “a fascinating musician,” will bring his dark, Lou Reed-meets-David Byrne blend of styles to San Miguel de Allende for only the second time, after having toured in the United States, Central America, Europe, Argentina, Peru, and throughout his adopted home of México.  (Website

I will be opening the show. You might know me as a multi-instrumentalist who plays with the Latin jazz group “Media Noche,” but I started writing lyrics in the vein of Randy Newman and Paul Simon when I was only 10 years old. I won the Dr Demento Novelty Songwriting Contest in 1973 for my song “Mediocre Mama.” Two of my albums, Plays Well With Others and Midlife Chrysalis, won independent music awards for Album of the Year, and Recording Magazine praised my latest CD as “…stellar playing and instrumental surprises, all wrapped up in most interesting arrangements.”

Two guitars, one piano and three unique voices combine for a night of sincere artistry and a look into the songwriter’s process. Grab your tickets now at either or at Denise Rosenfeld’s Postres Artesenales in Mercado Sano.  Refreshments will be available.
