  • Uncommon Ground (Lakeview) 3800 North Clark Street Chicago, IL, 60613 United States (map)


The husband and wife duo of Jenny and Robin Bienemann are both singer-songwriters and instrumentalists. By turns hilarious and heartfelt, this cutting-edge acoustic duo melds original and traditional music with an elegant hint of jazz, garnering airplay on NPR, Dr. Demento, and The Midnight Special. Jenny’s new album, “Every Soul Grows to the Light,” is a favorite of Folk DJs and has drawn comparisons to Nick Drake and Rikki Lee Jones. Robin is a 2017 Kerrville New Folk Finalist. His wild guitar stylings and outrageous lyrics inspire audiences to sing-along with songs like “Jennifer Aniston” and “Chicks Dig a Big Amygdala.” Both perform and record together and separately. Combined they have 9 albums, including Jenny & Robin Bienemann LIVE.

Jordi Baizan is a first generation American and native Texan songwriter. His songwriting has garnered him recognition from several prestigious songwriting competitions including the Grassy Hill Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Competition, the Songwriter Serenade Competition, and the South Florida Folk Festival’s Singer/Songwriter Competition. Baizan connects with the hearts and minds of audiences all over the US and Western Europe with well-crafted, clearly-delivered lyrics and a unique vocal quality that often brings comparisons to James Taylor and Jim Croce.
