Bob Webb is a talented multi-instrumentalist and recording engineer who has played cello and guitar since childhood. He played for nine years in the house band for the NPR radio show Mountain Stage, where he backed up many folk music greats including Odetta, Arlo Guthrie, Tom Paxton, and Shawn Colvin.
Muller has been a featured artist and instructor at Appalachian dulcimer festivals for many years. She and Webb have toured widely, appearing at Kentucky Music Week, Ohio Valley Gathering, Tumbleweed Music Festival, the National Oregon Trails Center, the National Music Museum, Mountain Stage, and many others. Every July they host their own music camp, Dulcimer Week, in the Wallowas.
