Bow Thayer has been kicking up a beautiful racket in Vermont for many years. Starting in Boston where he made a name for himself, he decided to move to Vermont.

While on the road he has introduced his music and the Bojotar to fans and friends alike, including Bela Fleck, Richard Thompson, James McMurtry, John Hiatt, Booker T and Warren Haynes. If you follow Vermont music, then you need to see BOW THAYER!
