Spencer Bohren found a home in Colorado in the early part of his 55-year career. Born in Wyoming, he landed in Denver and Boulder, playing with several bands through the ’60s and ’70s. He learned acoustic blues first-hand from icons including the Rev. Gary Davis at the Denver Folklore Center, and he also played with folk singer Judy Roderick before deciding to move to New Orleans and start a family with his wife Marilyn. Celebrating the traditional music of America, he initiated a long recording career of fifteen albums and performed hundreds of concerts in the US and Europe. He passed in June 2019.
