Everything I Ever Needed to Know ...

... I Learned From Bobby Horton

Sunday afternoon I went to see Bobby Horton performing Songs from the Civil War at The Leeds Arts Council Theatre. Bobby played various instruments, including a 19th century Washburn guitar, a Martin guitar, and a fiddle, harmonica and banjo. He told funny stories and trajic tales about soldiers from the South and the North.

It was a marvelous opportunity to see this multi-talented musician who graciously shares his wealth of talent, knowledge and humor with his audience. Bobby Horton is considered by many to be an expert in the field of historical music of the War Between the States. A gifted musician and brilliant individual, Bobby weaves a magic spell in his performances that transports the audience back to the years and the common folk of the 1800s.

Here's a good informal interview with Bobby.

And we all fondly recall "Bo the Fiddle Player" and "Earnest Indianly!" And what about the unfortunate lad who "shall have no saus-uh-ges!"
