The Study Session

The Study Session features Austin-based guitarist-singer-songwriters Robi Polgar and Kelly Rath, who perform an acoustic show that's melodic, energetic, witty and even, occasionally, a bit dramatic. Their songs feature deft guitar interplay, sweet/haunting harmonies and a fearless tilling of the landscape of love, loss and the vagaries and vanities of modern life.

Catch Kelly and Robi at The Butterfly Bar Fridays 6pm - 8pm (let's say every other week; the other other week it's Mr. P solo or with some buddies from his other band).

Kelly and Robi perform Scruffy the Cat's Land of 1,000 Girls live at The Butterfly Bar, Austin, TX. It's a Charlie Chesterman classic...RIP Charlie.


Kelly and Robi at in.gredients for the grocer's grand opening fete, Aug. 3, 2012.


Look closely and you'll see younger Kelly staring at older Kelly (full of attitude, man!) from the top right of that photo.
