|The Doghouse Carpenters (acoustic trio)||
The Doghouse Carpenters are the Americana trio of Bill Ackerbauer, Bill Healy and Bob Zink. The group plays traditional American folk, vintage country, bluegrass and old-timey music on a mix of acoustic instruments, including upright bass, guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle and harmonica. The trio peppers its performances with good humor, stories about the origins of the songs and throws the occasional curveball by putting an old-timey spin on modern material. Specialized thematic programs with topics such as Train Songs and Spirituals are available. We are willing to tailor our performances to your needs and interests.
|Songs for Kids of All Ages||
Bill Ackerbauer loves to get kids excited about participating in live music! He encourages sing-alongs, movement and silliness as he performs traditional and original material with guitar, banjo, fiddle, harmonica and other instruments. Bill has more than 20 years' experience as a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He has performed with bands in several genres (rock, bluegrass, folk) in addition to playing solo. Bill has performed for audiences of all ages at public libraries in Johnstown, Gloversville, Canajoharie, Troy and Ballston Spa, to name a few, as well as at museums, schools, festivals and markets around the state.
