Bob Bovee Concert

We have a rare opportunity to hear Bob Bovee in the intimate setting of a house concert at 8 PM on Friday, February 28. Doors open at 7:30. This is definitely a concert you do not want to miss! Bob rarely comes this way from Minnesota, and we are so excited to be able to have him in this area! His humor alone is worth the price of admission! Bob is a one man folk festival of authentic, traditional music.

The concert will be held in a wheel chair accessible home in Catonsville, MD. A limited number of chairs are still available.Suggested donation is $15 for members of BFMS, and affiliated organizations and $20 for the general public.Contributions of snack food for intermission are welcome. Bring instruments, because a jam will follow the concert.
