The Bob & Sarah Amos Band presents an exciting and varied program of Americana and Bluegrass original and traditional songs, with intricate instrumentation and soaring vocal harmonies. The band comes from the St. Johnsbury, Vt., area.
Guitarist/banjoist/vocalist Bob Amos is an internationally recognized, award-winning and chart-topping singer-songwriter who has recorded 12 albums and performed throughout the United States and Europe. His songs have also been recorded by other top national Bluegrass performers.
Bob was the leader and founder of the nationally touring band Front Range, who recorded five acclaimed albums for Sugar Hill Records between 1991-2003. In 2021 one of Bob’s original songs, “Blink Of An Eye,” recorded by three-time International Bluegrass Music’s male vocalist of the year Danny Paisley, was number one on the National Bluegrass Survey chart for two months, and in 2022 was nominated for the IBMA Song Of The Year.
In 2005 Bob came home to Vermont and began performing with his then 13-year-old daughter Sarah Amos, who has since developed into a vocalist of remarkable power and sensitivity. Together, their vocal blend is mesmerizing.
The Bob & Sarah Amos Band has been described as a Vermont Bluegrass Supergroup with seasoned and talented pros of the acoustic music scene. The group features Bob and Sarah on lead vocals, with Bob on banjo and guitar. Andy Greene on guitar and Kirk Lord on bass are longstanding highly regarded musicians who have been members of top Vermont bands such as The Revenants, The Bluegrass Gospel Project, The Modern Grass Quintet and Breakaway. Mandolinist Matt Flinner, who moved to Vermont about 10 years ago, is an exceptional musician and is widely considered to be one of the world’s top mandolin players.
“The Bob & Sarah Amos Band provide a highly entertaining program, ranging from powerful bluesy bluegrass to beautiful ballads, which is sure to please all fans of acoustic music,” said GNWCA President Charlie Jordan.
