Bob Amos first became an internationally recognized and acclaimed bluegrass musician and songwriter as the leader of the popular award winning band Front Range. From 1990-2003, Front Range recorded seven CDs, and received top notch reviews and heavy airplay on bluegrass radio programs throughout the world.
Over many years Amos has been universally praised for his musical arrangements and original bluegrass material.
Sing Out! magazine has called Bob “one of the most constantly intelligent and interesting songwriters in American music.”
Bob is once again in the bluegrass spotlight with a whole new batch of stellar original songs, and a terrific new band, Bob Amos & Catamount Crossing, to present this new material to the public.
The group features Bob on banjo, guitar and vocals, his daughter Sarah Amos on vocals, Freeman Corey on fiddle, Gary Darling on mandolin and vocals, Steve Wright on guitar and vocals, and bassist Chris Cruger.
The band puts on an entertaining high-energy show, with stellar harmonies, rock solid instrumentation, top shelf original material, plus great new interpretations of some bluegrass classics.
Bob’s CD “Borrowed Time” was given a highlight review in Bluegrass Unlimited magazine, and his most recent CD, “Sunrise Blues,” was named Best Traditional Album of the Year by Vermont’s Barre-Montpelier Times Argus Music Awards. VPR’s “All The Traditions” radio host Robert Resnick wrote “(Sunrise Blues) gets my vote as best acoustic album of 2014.”
