Bob's Space -  I'm starting my 53rd year in music!

This is a home-made space... It replaces the Uncle Bobís Woodshop web site. It contains photos and music for friends and customers. I still do custom work and repairs, but not from the Meredith Main Street location.  I'm now about a half-mile North on Route 3.   The phone number is still the same: (603) 279-6032 

   Just released: "See Around That Corner" a new CD by Idol Hands (with Ellen Carlson, guest fiddler)  click here for details

I organized RTB while I was still in high school (yes, that's David Gates the prize-winning author).  The Flashbacks started out as a keep-our-fingers-in-shape pastime for the two guys kneeling, Bob & Dave Light.  When Bill Very, Buster Horton, & Bill Tyler joined, it evolved into the most successful oldies band in New England.  Listen to Dave Light doing "Hound Dog".


During my undergraduate years at UConn, I played in two bands.  The Snake Hill Boys are pictured below: Jens Lund, Dick Smith, me, and (hidden) Ken Arnaldi.  When Ken left, I recruited a high-school "kid", Dick Fegy - who went on to become David Bromberg's right-hand man.  The band on the stage of the Grand Ol' Opry Road Show is The Cedar Mountain Boys.  I played bass; Bob Smith played banjo and Charlie Smith played guitar.  The leader of the group was multi-instrumentalist Sam Tidwell.   At the International Bluegrass Music Museum, Sam is honored as being one of 200 Bluegrass pioneers.
