Bob Snider

My guest today is the respected Canadian folk icon, Bob Snider. Bob is a fingerstyle guitarist, songwriter, and poet who has all the musicians at a festival running across the field to catch his set. Over the past 20 years, he has released 7 of his own albums and appeared on countless compilations. There has also been a tribute album made of his songs. He has written two books on Gaspereau Press: On Songwriting and On Performance. His new CD on Borealis Records is called A Maze In Greys.

Robert Rountree sent me this podcast today. I enjoyed it very much, as I used to use Bob Snider’s stuff when I was teaching music in the elementary schools in Tottenham. I also write songs, and it usually takes me a whole day. If it takes me longer than that…the song has problems, and I usually end up trashing it. My best songs come in a couple of hours.
