Teaches these classes at Traditions Weeks

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. 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. He has recorded three albums of original songs, Rushsylvania, Kin, and most recently, Banjo for Lovers. He found himself buoyed and carried to a rich pool of talent found in a university town in Indiana. Unbent and unbowed by the twisters, hipsters, politicos and literati, he found his voice as a singer and a writer. Expressing himself on multiple instruments with singular original style he continues to be a musical force with clever tunes, a clear eye and sharp wit.
