Bob Lusk

From New York to Florida, by way of the big clipper ships, the far east and the British Isles, Bob Lusk's songs encompass the whole world and hundreds of songs.

A veteran of both the Irish and American folk circuit, Bob is an experienced balladeer and multi-instrumentalist. He sings in a strong baritone, from rousing "pub song" favorites to tender love songs and accompanies himself on guitar, cittern, banjo, and concertina.

Like the minstrels of old, he performs songs that weave a tale of people’s history. His songs also reflect a strong social conscience and a lifetime of working for peace, justice and social action. He is a long time member of the Hudson Valley Folk Guild, a former staff member of Sing Out! Magazine, the country’s premier folk music magazine, and a member of the American Federation of Musicians, Local 1000.
