Ark in the Basement
I will be playing Harp at the Fargo Winter Fest (Feb 10, 2007) with Little Bobby and the Storm. I also played with them at the 2006 Fargo Blues Festival and the Last Ride Festival in Thief River Falls. I have been working on my current one-man band style for about 9 months. I use a 'G' harmonica in a mouth rack, and play a Bodhran (an Irish hand held drum) at the same time. All the tracks on the CD are solo performances, recorded uncut and unedited. I will do 3 or 4 takes, and take the best one, but basically, if you went to see Glenn 'Catfish Bones' Bowen perform solo, this is what you'd hear (on a good night). Before I took up the harp, I was a playwright, and in 2002, I received a Fellowship from the llinois Arts Council for the full length musical 'The Acts of Cain'. I also wrote 'Nobody Cares' about a blues harp player.
