Ackerbauer, Bill Old-timey ballads and blues History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
The Bentwood Rockers are an acoustic duo specializing in old-time country, hokum, Piedmont blues and traditional folk -- music from the early days of the recording industry. Between them, Bill Ackerbauer and Roland Vinyard play a variety of stringed instruments -- fiddle, guitars, many kinds of banjos, mandolin, autoharp, harmonica. They have a stage presence that is both casual and engaging, scholarly and humorous. Bill and Roland both live in New York’s beautiful Mohawk Valley. Performing as The Bentwood Rockers gives them a outlet for their mutual obsession with the sublime rustic-roots sounds of the 1920s and 30s. They pepper their concerts with historical anecdotes about the musicians, instruments and culture that produced the music we now consider 'vintage.'
