TONIGHT: Dick Bowden's Flying Circus


Friday, October 26 @ 7:30 pm
Unitarian Fellowship
$15 at the Door

Dick Bowden is one of the leading traditional bluegrass banjo pickers in New England. Starting in 1966 with The Bowden Family and The Fort Knox Volunteers, Dick helped establish bluegrass in his home state of Maine. He was a bench member of Joe Val’s New England Bluegrass Boys, and played five years with Herb Applin’s Berkshire Mountain Boys. Moving to New York in 1989, Dick played guitar with The Case Brothers – Martin & Gibson (two recordings) for 10 years, and played banjo on fiddler Joe Meadows’ final CD in 2001. With his encyclopedic knowledge of bluegrass styles and lyrics, Dick is the go-to guy to lead high-level bluegrass jam sessions or emcee concerts and festivals. He’s a frequent contributor to online and print publications and currently serves as Ringmaster of Dick Bowden’s Flying Circus, a high-energy revue of seriousness and silliness.

Set One & Two - The Bluegrass Characters

He's swift. He's talented. He's there for all of those who weren't able to make it to the great evening of music.

Who is he? He's Fred Robbins and he has just released Set One and Set Two of his videos of the HVBA Bluegrass Characters' Concert held last month. Don't miss it!

Fred has also posted his photos of the evening and those are available for viewing now on our website .
