“It's always good to hear from Bob, who made his name with the legendary Stratford band, The Perth County Conspiracy 'does not exist', all those years ago. He's had a solid career as a folk artist and has touched the hearts of all who have come to hear his simple country folk songs and humorous stories of life out in the country”. Stratford Music News I have a long musical history, Singing and playing music for 50 years.
Do the names “The Perth County Conspiracy, does not exist”, or “Black Swan Coffeehouse” in Stratford, or Smales Pace in London ring a bell. Or “Festival of Friends”, or “Ten Lost Years”, conjure up images of good times in the early song-writer scene in Ontario. Well there is a good chance you have already heard some of me.
I started my singing career in Winnipeg as Jason Birch, and worked in Toronto at various places with that name. Upon the stage in Convocation Hall at the University of Toronto, I had to decide who I would be introduced as, to a full house and I thought maybe my original name was good enough.
Some would say I have been on a path less travelled. Oh Yes, the big concerts, and then the treadmill of “New” Country Bars, Ski Lodges, and Street-festivals “just to make a living”, all the while growing my own crops with a 42 horse,David Brown tractor . Corn,beans,wheat.
I have written and recorded the songs on 9 cds and have a large number I need to finish .many a love song, of people, of lifestyles, and country, from the quiet homestead perspective of my family farm near Dublin Ont. While helping the old folks retire, and kids to grow, I had a folklore styled music store, R.B Music Studio, and Stonetown Music Centre, in St Marys, Ont. Over a 12 year run I had hundreds of students , rentals, and repairs of string instruments.

Although I am a Stratford native, I currently live in Perth and London Ontario Canada.
