Bob & Dee performing with a guitar and a violin

Dee Specker: Vocals and Violin | Bob Walpole: Vocals and Acoustic Guitar

   This duo began with a synchronistic reunion in early 2011 after 36 years of approaching life in two separate musical directions.  Bob & Dee met while performing together at a concert in their hometown of Wellsville, NY in 1974.  After the performance, Dee and Bob went their wide and separate ways. 

   An award winning Nashville recording artist, Grammy nominee and Ithaca resident, Dee spent a good part of the last two decades touring the country with Cornerstone, a nationally recognized bluegrass band.  When not playing BOB & DEE gigs she can be found performing with A-list Ithaca and area musicians playing a wide range of music from bluegrass to jazz. 

   Bob now resides by the lake in Romulus.  He’s been performing for his entire life on both coasts and, until reuniting with Dee, had been primarily a solo performer.  An experienced and accomplished musician, Bob is a familiar face at Finger Lakes wineries and bistros. 

   Together Dee and Bob create tons of music for a duo, big harmonies and enchanting melodies. Dee’s lovely voice and imaginative violin solos meet up with Bob’s airy and exuberant rhythms and vocal harmonies.  Their eclectic song list takes you effortlessly from genre to genre.

   Bob & Dee have quickly become favorites in the Finger Lakes region.
