    Bob Amos’s new CD Sunrise Blues was released at a special concert in June to a packed house of over 300 people in St. Johnsbury Vermont. This new album includes 10 original compositions plus new versions of two bluegrass classics. Initial reviews have been terrific!

    Bob Amos’s previous CD, Borrowed Time received terrific reviews (see CDs page) and airplay on bluegrass radio shows across the USA. In the liner notes Lynn Morris (Lynn Morris Band, 3 time IBMA female vocalist of the year) and Marshall Wilborn (Lynn Morris Band, Johnson Mountain Boys, Long View, IBMA bassist of the year) have said: “ ‘Borrowed Time’ is Bob Amos’s first bluegrass outing since the last Front Range CD in 2003, and we must say he’s hit a home run!! We love this CD!”

  From 1988-2004 Bob was the lead singer, guitarist and guiding force behind the internationally acclaimed bluegrass band Front Range, which recorded 7 CDs, including 5 for famed acoustic Indie label SUGAR HILL RECORDS. Front Range toured throughout America and Europe, and received heavy airplay on Acoustic, Americana and Bluegrass radio stations. Their CD One Beautiful Day won the International Bluegrass Music Association’s Gospel Recording of the Year in 1995.

   SINGOUT! magazine reviewer John Lupton has called Bob “one of the most consistently interesting and intelligent songwriters in American music.”

   Bob’s current band, Bob Amos & Catamount Crossing features lots of Bob’s terrific original material, plus some innovative arrangements of classic tunes and songs. Bob’s daughter Sarah Amos plays a big part in the band’s signature big vocal sound, and their duets are proving to be big hits in their performances!

“Best Traditional Album of 2014”  - Vermont Times Argus “Tammie” Awards


With great songwriting, impeccable playing that honors bluegrass tradition and vocals that can stop you in your tracks, Sunrise Blues has my vote for Vermont acoustic music recording of the year. More, please!  - Robert Resnick, Seven Days Review (host of VPR’s All The Traditions)


“Bob Amos is a force of nature..... an album full of gorgeous melodies, tight arrangements, compelling harmonies and vivid story lines. There is something exceptional going on here......”  

    - Carl Goldstein, WVUD, Newark DE


“One of the most talented bluegrass artists in the country... as flawless a bluegrass album as you are likely to hear...     - Art Edelstein, Times-Argus, Rutland Herald, VT


“Sunrise Blues is an ear-opener in many ways... but it is his relatively new high profile role as a banjo frontman that is a relavation. Amos’s five-string does what his songs and vocals have always done, which is to find that perfect pocket where rhythmic drive seems effortless and the melodies seem new and timeless, simultaneously.”   - Bluegrass Unlimited magazine
