For over 35 years, Spencer Bohren has performed in and around New Orleans as a solo American roots musician. Outside of New Orleans, Spencer is additionally a noted storyteller and educator, performing his own Down the Dirt Road Blues for concert audiences, universities and schools. Down the Dirt Road Blues follows the journey of a single song as it travels through America’s history and culture, from pre-slavery African beginnings to the Rolling Stones. Spencer’s concurrent narrative provides a historical context for the changes that drive the music forward. Performed on appropriate vintage instruments, Down the Dirt Road Blues carries the audience on a musical journey that leaves everyone with a new appreciation for America’s unique treasure of traditional music.
