Bobby Sweet

Bobby is a sixth-generation musician. He began performing at age 7 in his father’s band. As a performer, Bobby has shared the bill with many top country and folk artists, including Vince Gill, Bill Staines, Martin Sexton, Arlo Guthrie, Pete Seeger, and Jonathan Edwards. As a sought-after lead guitarist he has played shows opening for George Jones, Diamond Rio, Asleep at the Wheel, Willie Nelson, The Bellamy Brothers, Waylon Jennings, and many others. He has recently returned home from his fourth U.S. tour playing guitar with Arlo Guthrie on Guthrie’s 50th Anniversary of Alice’s Restaurant tour. His travels with Guthrie saw performances at Carnegie Hall, the New Orleans Jazz Fest, and Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion among many other landmark venues.

In 2011, he was selected as a New Folk finalist at Kerrville Folk Festival in Kerrville, TX. Bobby’s songs have also received honorable mentions from The New York Songwriter’s Circle Songwriting Contest, The UK Songwriting Contest, The Billboard Songwriting Contest, and The Mountain Stage NewSong Contest. He has written songs that have aired on many hit television series including Nashville, Touched By An Angel, Walker Texas Ranger, CSI, and Judging Amy. His instrumental and vocal work have been featured on recordings by Arlo Guthrie, Sarah Lee Guthrie, and a host of other independent album projects. Bobby also produced Annie Guthrie’s debut album, Dragonfly, released last year.

Stylistically, Bobby’s music resides somewhere between John Prine, Jackson Browne, and a countryfied Bruce Springsteen. An engaging storyteller and dynamic performer, he is at home on the stage, whether performing solo or with his full band.

This summer (2017) Bobby is celebrating the release of his 7th solo album, All These Changes.
