A chat with local folk aficionado Bob Blackman

Aug 12, 2013

Bob Blackman's name is virtually synonymous with folk music in mid-Michigan.  He's  been associated with the Great Lakes Folk Festival for many, many years.  He’s a fixture with Elderly Instruments in Lansing, a real center of folk music in this community.  Many people in our audience remember him as a part of the WKAR family.  Bob Blackman hosted “The Folk Tradition” on WKAR for nearly 30 years.
