Music has always been a part of Tim Robbins’ life, we can say it is inscribed in his DNA, as he is the son of two folk musicians. Having achieved international fame as an actor, director and film and theater author, he has continued to cultivate his passion for folk and rock music. His concerts are rare and memorable events, like the only date in Spoleto, when Tim Robbins will be joined by the musicians of the Rogues Gallery Band.
