Bob Culbertson has been one of the most well known solo Stick
performers ever since he started with the instrument back in
1976. Forced to watch Emmett demo the instrument instead of taking
a day off at the beach, Bob has called the Stick his main instrument
ever since. With over 80,000 CDs sold, he is one of the most popular
and influential performers on the instrument today.
In addition to his recording and performance credits, Bob created a
series of video tapes called
Lessons on the Stick
which are available from Stick Enterprises and are considered a "must
have" for any Stick player. In these tapes, Bob clearly demonstrates
the same series of lessons that are also documented on his web site
plus much more. Having taught over 100 students in his career, Bob has
also taught at several Stick seminars all over the world.
Bob will be teaching at the 2002 Midwest Stick Seminar in Ann Arbor,
Michigan in August and will be performing all over the country in
August and September.
Right now, scheduled dates for the coming month include:
- Festival of little Hills in St. Charles, MO on August 17 and 18
- Evergreen Arts Festival in Evergreen, CO on August 25 and 26
- Yellow Daisy Festival in Stone Mtn, GA on September 6.8
