Adam Robersmith is a vocalist and harper with twenty years of musical training and performance experience. Classically trained, but influenced by jazz, Irish folk, and classic rock, he has developed a style that is clear and accessible. "I believe in simplicity," says Robersmith. "I like a full sound, but I love the effect that using only one, two, or three instruments has in communicating a song. I think that it is important that the listener be able to understand what words I sing, and that they are able to appreciate the quality of the instruments I use."

In addition to harp and voice, Robersmith also plays the bodhran (an Irish frame drum) and often performs with Don Myers, who plays acoustic bass, flute, pennywhistle, and other woodwinds, and was trained at the Ithaca College School of Music. Robersmith's critically praised first album, A Light in the Darkness, includes performances and music written by Robersmith and Myers.

Robersmith's repertoire ranges from Irish ballads and war songs to American Spirituals, from classical arias to Fleetwood Mac. Original songs and arrangements round out his performances, which can be tailored to almost any event. He also combines music and storytelling in his performances. Performance programs and fees are arranged on a case-by-case basis.
