The Connecticut-based roots band Poor Old Shine has performed in places as varied as the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., to Rockwood Music Hall in New York City. But for the next month or so, they can be found on a very different stage: the American Repertory Theatre’s Loeb Drama Center, where they’re performing their original music in a production of The Heart of Robin Hood.

Poor Old Shine joins WBUR’s Sacha Pfeiffer in the Radio Boston studio to give us a taste of some of the music in the A.R.T. show, and how this musical/theatrical collaboration came to be.
