During our conversation, recorded at the Barberville Spring Frolic—a music festival held at the Pioneer Settlement in Barberville, Florida—Franc Robert and Cindy Bear share their musical journey, the joy and challenges of collaboration, and their passion for preserving Florida's folk music legacy. We get a close up look  into the making of their latest album, Travels with Bear & Robert, and how they are stirring up a recipe for songs, stories, and community.

Main Highlights:
  1. Ignition Story at Sweat Fest: How a chance encounter at the Farm in Brooksville brought Bear & Robert together and ignited a musical partnership.
