Profile
Bow Thayer made a name for himself in Boston with 7 League Boots, a rock / reggae band. 15 years ago he decided to leave the city for the Green Mountains of Vermont. It was there that he explored the Delta blues playing slide guitar for the original Elbow and began a relationship with the banjo — both in the bluegrass group The Benders, and on his own — that continues to this day. His music is always evolving — from luscious backwoods folk rock to the sonic exploration of his 2015 album of all original material, Sundowser, that was co-produced and engineered by three-time Grammy winner Justin Guip (Levon Helm) and crafted on an instrument Bow created--the Bojotar--in a studio he built himself.
