Bob is a most soulful whistle player, specializing in a broad range of music, from Amazing Grace to amazing Irish jigs. His experience in playing pipes earlier in life has brought a singular phrasing to his music that evokes an ancient, misty world, where leprechauns (or whispers thereof) were prevalent and laptops weren't.
El McMeen has recorded on two of Bob's CD's, and Bob's latest, "Whistleworks II: Be Thou My Vision," is available through CD Baby:
Bob also shares his musical gift as a member of the McLean Bible Church Celtic Band, in McLean, Virginia.
