As a traveling Ragtimist, Bob Milne and wife/booking-agent/bookkeeper/navigator Linda are on the road around the USA and abroad about 90 percent of the year. Lapeer, Michigan is their stationary home, to which they retreat and refresh as often as possible. But the van is their home on the road. Outfitted with every necessity, this van has seen many, many miles of our great nation. Look for it out in the Long Lake parking lot.
Bob returns to Long Lake year after year. He enjoys the lakes and mountains of the Adirondacks and is so generous to perform concerts in Long Lake every summer. Look for his concert to be an informal classroom of music travels. Bob interacts with the audience and steers the showcase with his music and stories from concerts gone by. He’s performed over much of the globe and he has an uncanny ability to entertain the audience with his music as well has his stories. Audience members of all ages will enjoy the show.
