Brief History of Time
A Brief History of Time captures the essence of what makes The Robert Bobby Trio special. This collection of eleven songs was recorded live in the studio over two sessions to capture the energy & spirit of a typical RB3 performance....not that there is anything typical about seeing The Robert Bobby Trio. The Robert Bobby Trio is Robert Bobby on guitar & vocals, Mrs. Bobby on bass, & Bill Nork on dobro, mandolin and a little guitjo. Robert Bobby has been a staple of the Central Pennsylvania music scene for more decades than Tim McCarver played major league ball, and has been favorably reviewed by music critics in Rolling Stone, The Village Voice, Sing Out! And numerous other publications. He is known for his way with words, his passionate voice and his ability to connect with an audience. Bill Nork is one of the most respected guitar & mandolin players in Central Pennsylvania and professes to be one of the top 10,000 dobro players in the USA. On this recording he displays his versatility from ballads to blues and beyond on both mandolin & dobro. Mrs. Bobby is the rose between two thorns. Having learned to play the bass around the time her AARP membership arrived in the mail, Mrs. Bobby is an inspiration to anyone who has ever wished they could learn to play a musical instrument. The York County native brings her vast knowledge of roots music and a joy that is evident in her performance with the Robert Bobby Trio. Above all, she's Mrs. Bobby. The eleven songs on A Brief History of Time include six Robert Bobby originals, four classic cover songs that he has been performing throughout his career and a special one of a kind cover of Mitch Rosenberg's My Baby's Back. Mitch wrote this song when he was in high school back in the late 60's and Robert Bobby is thrilled to be the first to perform My Baby's Back on this CD.
