Bobby Horton, who tells stories and sing songs from the Civil War, grew up in an era when war stories were everywhere.

“I’m 64,” he said, speaking by phone recently from his home in Birmingham, Ala. “When I was a kid, my dad, all his brothers, all my mother’s brothers, baseball and football coaches, grammar school band director — they were all World War II veterans. So I grew up hearing war stories and asking people about it, and watching every movie about World War II.”

My first introduction to Civil War folk music was a couple of Bobby Horton cassette tapes (Homespun Songs of the C.S.A. and Homespun Songs of the Union Army, IIRC). He got me hooked.

Bobby is a very talented entertainer who has a wealth of knowledge pertaining to the music of the Civil War and a wit and personality to make his audiences feel as though they have known him for years. He has been performing with a group called Three on a String for probably forty years and hearing and seeing him perform is a very enjoyable way to pass an evening.
