"Bob"- SPECIAL GUEST ARTIST
WRITES: Messages for bottles
Though it's rumored that "Bob" is not "his" real name, The Folk Bros. are proud and pleased to feature "him" on any occasion that demands squeezebox rough-housing. Known throughout the state of Michigan as a a star supporting player "he" has hidden writing talent and great style. Strong mustache glue is "his" constant companion.
John "Klaus" Milroy - SPECIAL GUEST ARTIST
PLAYS: Stand-up bass
SINGS: If pushed
WRITES: Mostly for Americana artists The Milroys
Best known as one half of the Americana duo The Milroys (along with terrific writer and singer C.J. Milroy), Klaus is also one of the ringleaders for "The Rickety Nelsons" (a 10-piece band that does "lovingly recreations of classic country, pop, doo-wop and r&b"). "Klaus" has quickly become a facile "stand-up guy" on the bass (already damn good on acoustic guitar, he's also picked up lap-steel, as well...). The Bros. have the pleasure of tapping "Klaus" to hold down the low-end when Stig's "other lives" (a source of great mystery around FB HQ) don't allow him to travel for concerts.
Ralston "Stone" Bowles - AKA "The KING of FOLK" / HONORARY FOLK BRO.
PLAYS: No, this is not allowed by the other Bros.
SINGS: In a deep sonorous baritone
WRITES: Out of a deep well (his song "One More Holiday" is covered by the FBs)
Rightfully held in high regard across Michigan and over many state and national borders, Ralston is a literate and compassionate songwriter and performer. Naturally that means that he's playfully refereed to as "the King of Folk" (KOF) by the Bros. in keeping their snotty punk attitude toward inclusion. Of course they admire him, that's why he's an "honorary" bro. ...
