Bob Lucas is a glory shouting, sweet singing, banjo picking, guitar thumping, old time fiddling, song writing rounder with a desire to share a sense of musical wonder anyway he can. The Dancer Inside of You, Bob's 1972 release, received a 4-star rating from Downbeat Magazine. Two songs off Dancer were picked up and recorded by the legendary Newgrass Revival, who went on to recorded many of his songs in years that followed. In 1977, Bob co-founded the culture-morphing band Eclectricity, one of the first bands to bring 'gypsy' and 'klezmer' music to a North American folk-music audience. Eclectricity found a fan in, and often toured with, actor/singer Theodore Bikel. In 1986 Bob began working for Mad River Theater Works writing songs and making plays for what has become an ever-growing audience. Songs from this period of Bob's writing were recorded by the blissfully talented Alison Krauss on her 1996 Grammy Award winning album, So Long So Wrong, and again on her 2001 release, New Favorite. In addition to the countless recordings he has made with Mad River Theater Works in the past two decades, he has recorded two albums, Rushsylvania and Kin. And, Bob is excited to announce that work is complete on his new album, Banjo For Lovers.
