Biography

2008

Bob Linsenmayer got his start as an entertainer using the name Bob Lindsay while in college in northern California in the late 1950s. He began by performing folksongs and humor at college student hangouts. He worked his way up until he was playing the same clubs in San Francisco as the Kingston Trio and the Smothers Brothers. After the folk music boom faded in the mid-60s, Bob moved to Chicago and spent 31 years in the export business traveling the world. While at home with his late wife Sheryl, every evening at bedtime he told stories and sang songs to their two children, Robin and Mark. (Mark is now a singer/songwriter using the name Mark Lint - www.marklint.com.) In 1996 Bob retired from the export business, and he and Sheryl moved to South Carolina where he soon began presenting storytelling/music programs at schools, libraries and festivals. He uses guitar, jaw-harp, spoons, nose flute, washboard, African drum, a boa constrictor puppet, and a large repertoire of songs and stories in his performances. His mission is to educate children through storytelling and song, and also entertain adult audiences with his humorous stories and music.
