The Cabot Folk Club presents Bow Thayer
December 28, 2023 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$12 – $15
Bow Thayer is one of the Northeast’s finest purveyors of Americana music. Call it traditional folk and delta blues or progressive mountain music, and has spent the last 20 years forging a daring music path on his journey to bring backwoods music into the present.
Bow made a name for himself in Boston with 7 League Boots, a rock/reggae band that shared the stage with the likes of Fugazi, The Mighty Might Bosstones, and Pearl Jam. 25 years ago he made a life-altering decision to leave the city for the Green Mountains of Vermont. It was there that he explored the Delta blues playing slide guitar for the original Elbow and began a relationship with the banjo – both in the bluegrass group, The Benders, and on his own — that continues to this day. Bow combined these instruments into the Bojotar, a hybrid he designed that incorporates elements of the banjo, resonator guitar, and conventional guitar and was sold in a limited run by Eastwood/Airline Guitar Company. As No Depression put it, “You want inventiveness….I offer Bow Thayer.”
