In the Spring of 1983 while roasting Vienna sausages on a small hibachi on a patio overlooking Big Spring Creek in Newville Pennsylvania, Paul Strother, George Sneed, and Davis Tracy sat playing some of their favorite tunes. This was the setting the three named themselves Country Bob & the Barbecue Boys.
Soon thereafter, Larry Marschall joined the Boys and in recent years Glenn Carson became a member. Numerous other local and Tennessee born pickers have participated in the Country Bob experience, yet, to our knowledge, Bob himself remains unknown to this day.
With influences of folk, old-time stringband, traditional bluegrass, and Texas country music in their backgrounds, Country Bob plays works of Stephen Foster, Flatt & Scruggs, Guy Clark and John Hartford. The band has played for Carlisle First Night, the first Bluegrass on the Grass in 1996, the Gettysburg Railroad tours at Aspers Fire Hall, and various backyard barbecues.
