Irish-born, Boston-based Bob Bradshaw has a unique and compelling world-travellers' take on modern folk music. His songs draw inspiration from many musical traditions: Old Time, Bluegrass, the Texas story-telling songwriters, classic Country, alt-country, Americana and roots rock.

Bradshaw - some of whose previous albums have had titles like ‘Enjoy Your Confusion’ and ‘Some Assembly Required’ - has decided to call his new album simply ‘Home.’
This music is “spare yet abundant… sometimes suddenly, startlingly nimble” (Sean Walsh, Boston Irish Reporter) is “a quiet symphony of ghostly and evanescent airs” (Mark Tucker, Folk & Music Exchange),has “more than enough beauty and inventiveness to lift the coldest heart” (David Kleiner, Minor 7th.com) and has “sparse, engaging melodies, catchy hooks and inspired lyrics… however he lays down their content - swift or slow, abrupt or extended, exultant or heart-rending” (Tom Franks, Folkwords UK)

"A cross between Ray Davies, Randy Newman and Ryan Adams" - Taxi Music.
