Bob Bruen

Bob Bruen is a  mandolinist, composer and singer. He has been playing  and teaching mandolin since 1970 after hearing David Grisman on a Grateful Dead record.  Since taking up the mandolin he has performed professionally in the Bay Area in his own bands and with many musicians including mandolin legends Rudy Cipolla, David Grisman and legendary fiddler Vassar Clemens.

In 1975 He was fortunate to have his first composition included on The David Grisman Rounder Album. In 2002 he moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico. Since 2004 he has recorded four CD’s under the name “Walking Rain” with his long time friend and fellow picker Coale Johnson. He currently lives and teaches in Eldorado and can be seen mucking about in local venues with a local cast of musical characters.
