Colin McCaffrey, Bow Thayer and Jim Rooney: Song Swap
Friday, October 20, 2023, 7 pm
Colin and Jim welcome Bow Thayer to the Seven Stars Arts Center stage!
As Seven Days puts it, "Bow Thayer has been kicking up a beautiful racket
in Vermont for many years now."
Making music is who he is, coming to explore the Delta blues, playing slide guitar, and beginning a relationship with the banjo. Bow combined these instruments into the Bojotar, a hybrid he designed that incorporates elements of the banjo, resonator guitar, and conventional guitar. As No Depression put it, "You want inventiveness....I offer Bow Thayer."
7:00 pm concert time. Doors open at 6:30.
Ticket cost: $20.00 (+$2.07 fee) in advance:
$25 at the door
Children under 12 – free admittance.
