Cassandra Robertson, a Corvallis, Ore., singer and songwriter who plays “acoustic conscious folk,” will play a free concert from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 9 in Café Luna.

The buzz on Robertson continues to build as her brand of folk wins over audiences wherever she goes.

Her blend of folk, rock, country and bluegrass attracts a variety of music fans of all ages, and her insightful and upbeat style guarantees a memorable experience.

Her second CD, “Impulse to Dream,” is full of bright, socially aware lyrics that take on the challenges of our time with solutions and inspiration.

With song topics ranging from quantum physics and alternative energy to stories of community activism and the support for our soldiers, “Impulse to Dream” is a greatly anticipated collection of conscious and uplifting music.

“An artist who can voice her opinion and at the same time create songs that are open to interpretation by the listener has a much better chance at surviving the changes that each year brings, and singer-songwriter Cassandra Robertson is one such artist,” according to a recent article by Volcano Weekly.
