Bob Simons and Renee Goodwin have known each other for more than 40 years, meeting when they were both involved in the great folk music scene of the 60’s. Joining forces in 2006, they’ve been performing Americana music ever since, including soft rock, country, blues, pop standards and, of course, both traditional and contemporary folk. Simons and Goodwin have performed here at Lithgow several times over the last two decades, always to appreciative audiences, and we are excited to welcome them back again.
