The Bobs, an acoustic string band, perform a rare collection of old-time music (and a dash of contemporary folk) with an unassuming verve for the genre. You’ll hear rollicking reels and jigs alongside ballads backed by double guitars, mandolin, banjo, fiddle, and harmonica. Will Wright, multi-instrumentalist, plays fiddle, banjo, mandolin, harmonica, cajón, and jaws harp; Kevin Wright plays rhythm and slide guitar (including some mean blues) and mandolin; Jim Reiman’s rhythm/flatpicked guitar is the group’s instrumental heartbeat; and Spencer Lewis adds his well-established and distinctive style of violin and fiddle. Everyone sings in four parts – harmony and chorus.
The Bobs are a session band with every session being different. It is the union of family and decades of friendship that binds them all to the common core of the music they love.
