Episode 28 - Bob Putnam Interview
In this episode I sit down at the kitchen table with my good friend Bob Putnam and talk bluegrass and art. Bob, as an artist, sculptor and art educator, has a knack for describing these fascinating similarities. Enjoy the show!

Links for this episode:
Robert “Bob" Putnam is a native Georgian who grew up in Clayton County. As a child he would listen to his father play the harmonica on the porch at their home. A nurturing mother purchased a Silvertone acoustic guitar which Bob started to play at the age of 12.
Through the years his dominant influences in music were John Prine, Bob Dylan, Tony Rice and groups such as the Dillards, Cedar Hill and Mountain Heart. Bob has performed at countless events through the years. He currently lives in Canton, GA and has performed with the band “Faculty Grass” for the past 27 years and the "Jot’em Down Boys".
Bob Putnam is presently the guitar player and singer with the N. Georgia bluegrass band 8th of January. If you get a chance to hear them or pick with them you will enjoy it a lot. Bob's Facebook page is here.
