Jubilee Community Arts: Bryan Bowers

Category: Music

Autoharp

From his rather unglamorous beginning as a street singer, Bryan Bowers has become a major artist on the traditional music circuit. He has redefined the autoharp and is also well known as a singer-songwriter. Born in Yorktown, Virginia, Bryan Bowers was raised in New Bohemia near Petersburg of the Civil War’s Battle Of The Crater fame. As a child, Bowers would tag along with the field workers and gandy dancers and learned to sing old call-and-answer songs. He took up music seriously in the 1960s learning guitar and later autoharp after relocating to Seattle. In 1993, Bryan was the first living member inducted into the Autoharp Hall of Fame to stand only with Maybelle Carter, Kilby Snow, and Sara Carter. His critically acclaimed recordings include The View From Home, Home, Home On the Road, By Heart, Friend For Life, For You and Bristlecone Pine.
