Bob Zentz is, a singer of Songs, Old & New, about people, places
and times gone by, as well as a player on dozens of the usual,
and unusual 'unplugged' folk instruments. A collector of stories
in verse and a teller of 'the tales behind the songs', Zentz is
also a commentator on the ecology of the human spirit and a scholar
of the evolution of "home-made music".
A Bob Zentz concert is a smorgasbord of contemporary, traditional
and original tunes and chat, linked by the artist's philosophic
perspective, thematic-logic and a strong sense of history, humanity
and humor. In performance, the audience becomes involved, creating
a spirit of community, through shared choruses and related ideas.
From traditional Celtic tunes and ballads to science fiction
songs and sea chanteys: from Tales of 'Old Timers and Old Rhymers'
to poetry set to Music, each show is a unique testimony to Bob's
vast repertoire and varied personal interests. And, Bob Zentz
sings some 'Songs That He Writes', just 'cause he couldn't find
'em. anywhere else!
