Bo Ramsey and the Third Floor

  • Sat Mar 10 2018 - 8:00 pm • CSPS Hall
  • $17 advance | $21 door

The 2016 release ‘Wildwood Calling’ marks Bo Ramsey’s first all-instrumental album in a 30-year career as iconic guitar player. For those who might recognize Bo by his association with artists like Lucinda Williams, Greg Brown, Kevin Gordon, Pieta Brown, Charlie Parr and others, his new music is the perfect introduction to someone who always listens and plays with his own sonic vision in full motion. Not surprisingly, the list of Ramsey’s accolades is long: Grammy-winning guitar player, Grammy-nominated producer, Iowa Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, Iowa Blues Hall of Famer. But above all, Ramsey is a proud, card-carrying member of his own hall of fame, which is the one where he chases the sounds in his head and his heart. He is always looking for a way to wrestle them into a recording so he can share that love of music with friends and strangers alike. ‘Wildwood Calling’ has been called an album for the ages, and the perfect calling card for anyone with an interest in hearing the past, the present and the future rolled into one. Bo’s return to CSPS Hall will see him joined onstage by Marty Christensen on bass and Randall Davis on lead guitar.
