Bob Burtch Bluegrass Band To Perform in 2019 in Flinton!
Bluegrass fans will recognize Bob Burtch from his 8 years of touring with internationally acclaimed and CCBA multi-award winning group, The Abrams Brothers. Bob was born in Elgin, Ontario and grew up near Crosby where he got into music at an early age. Bob was playing in a country band by the time he was 10 years old.
Even after spending much of the last 70+ years playing the mandolin, the Newboro area native hasn’t lost that gleam in his eye when it comes to music. Bob has picked with many of Nashville’s finest including Jesse McReynolds and they have remained close over the years. It was through McReynolds influence that Burtch started playing more Bluegrass along with the many standards he regularly performs.
Bob as hand picked a stellar line-up to accompany his featuring acclaimed Kingston area musicians Shawn Kellet (Grass Creek, Top Shelf, Hard Ryde, Handsome Molly), Pete Deachman and Bill Lansdell (Blue Mule, Handsome Molly), and local banjo phenom Ted Pelow (Bluegrass Bandits). This group set attendance records at Westport Live! Music Festival and continue to sell out wherever they perform.
Welcome back to Flinton Bob!
