About Light Years
Acclaimed folk/rock/indie band Eddie From Ohio’s Robbie Schaefer crafts a touching and funny world premiere musical portrait featuring Bobby Smith.
A master storyteller, Robbie journeys from his childhood in India to the joys and struggles of growing up, pursuing his passion and raising a family. Entwined throughout is his cherished relationship with his father—and his father’s haunted past.
Enriched with beautiful folk-rock music, inventive lyrics and Robbie’s disarming humor, LIGHT YEARS is a deeply personal tale of immigration, musical gifts and the steadfast bond between father and son.
