Bob Bovee

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:

authentic cowboy songs..
ballads..
blues & ragtime..
square dance tunes..
sentimental songs..
novelty numbers, yodels,
& tin pan alley favorites !

Bob is a Nebraska native whose family sang and played the old-time songs. Many of the western and railroad songs he does were learned from his grandmother and uncle. He plays banjo and autoharp, sings and yodels, and can drive a dance band with his guitar and harmonica. Bob is well known and loved for his dry and witty stage humor. He has published numerous articles and reviews for The Old-Time Herald and Inside Bluegrass and been an instructor for a course called "The History of Country Music" for the Honors Division at the University of Minnesota. Bob is also the Artistic Director for the Bluff Country Gathering and the organizing force for the Lanesboro Barn Dance.
