Bob French (2)
Bob and Grace French played on live TV in Nashua, New Hampshire, throughout most of the 1950s and 1960s. They appeared at all the early New England bluegrass festivals also. As a bluegrass duo, the Frenchs were staples in the Boston bluegrass scene in the 1960s.
French was an original member of Boston-based band The Old Time Bluegrass Singers, a group that changed its name to Joe Val and New England Bluegrass Boys
All his life Bob was known as a serious devotee of traditional bluegrass, a solid Scruggs-style banjoist, and talented high tenor vocalist. He appears on two albums with Joe Val in the early 1970s, One Morning In May and Joe Val and The New England Bluegrass Boys.
