Robert was recently featured on the WXYZ news show “Taking Action for Detroit.” He talked about Detroit’s resiliency and performed his original song “This Old House," on a guitar made from reclaimed wood by craftsman Gary Zimnicki. The song was inspired by a guitar that  Zimnicki made from the remnants of a house on Trumbull.
