One of the things every performing musician needs is a good, short bio for programs, publicity, etc. Who is really terrible at writing good short bios? Most musicians, that’s who. I was more comfortable writing a whole page about my evolution and experience as a musician but always struggle with a concise, informative short bio. Friend and fellow musician Mary Rocap wrote this (partially extracted from info on this site and partially from herself) for a program I’m playing for her:
Robbie Link is the Triangle’s go-to double bass player. His expertise and experience are legendary. He is a much sought after session player, teacher, and collaborator. In the academic world he has taught double bass at East Carolina, UNC/ Chapel Hill, Duke and for 30 years taught bass and cello and coached the young ensembles at the Duke University Pre-Collegiate String School.
I think she did a pretty good job. Thanks, Mary!
