Musician, artist and storyteller Spencer Bohren presents two performances next week in Laramie.
Bohren’s music pays tribute to the rivers, roads and bayous of the American South.
“He has a marvelous gift for sharing his great love for America’s wealth of traditional folk, blues, gospel and country music with audiences of all ages,” said Rod Garnett, University of Wyoming professor of music. “His ability to animate the musicians and singers from the past -- with both respectful readings of their music and spellbinding stories -- is legendary.”
From opinionated topical songs to highway tunes to ballads, Bohren presents a wide range of music, with an ever-changing assortment of vintage guitars, lapsteels and banjos.
