Hope your Summer has been wonderful and that you are ready for the pleasures that
Fall brings, such as 1) it's still not Winter yet 2) only 2 more seasons until
Spring 3) comfort food 4) apple pie 5) pumpkin pie 6) tuna noodle casserole-okay
it is a comfort food 7) Fall leaves 8) football season 9)the end of lawn mowing
season and of course 10) THE SOUTHWEST REGIONAL FOLK ALLIANCE CONFERENCE (SWRFA)
IN AUSTIN, TEXAS Sept 26 to 29th. Mrs. Bobby & I attended last year and
had so much fun and met such good folks that we signed up again.
We have been laying low this Summer so we thought we should get a little face time
in front of an audience prior to attending SWRFA, and to that end, we attended two
open mike's last weekend. We went down to The Wagon Shed in New Freedom on Friday
where Art Wachter always makes us feel at home. We actually got to perform 6 songs
and also heard some really good performances by a gal named Penny, Colleen
& Art Wachter to name a few that stood out. Then on Sunday we hit the open mike
at The Holy Hound in York and also got to play 6 songs. The folks there were very
nice, great selection of beers and we seemed to be well received. On to SWRFA.
On THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 21st, we are particularly excited to be playing the Lansdowne
Folk Club opening for Chrisine Havrilla. I know some of the members and I saw a
show there last Fall featuring our friend Ken Gaines and it is the kind of listening
room experience that we are hoping to play more of in the future. We are also hopeful
that another Philadelphia area gig will materialize in the Spring. We'll keep
Have a great Fall and send me your favorite Fall experiences to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below is a video of The Robert Bobby Duo at a house concert in Maryland that we did
in the Spring. Enjoy.
In case you are wondering, we still have The Robert Bobby Trio with our good
friend from Baltimore MD, Bill Hooper, on lead guitar. If you have any connections
or suggestions for places we might play, or want to host either The Duo or Trio
at a house concert, let us know. Musically yours, Robert Bobby
