Singer-songwriter Bob Livingston is a folk-rock raconteur who tours nationally and internationally. He is a founding member of Austin’s legendary Lost Gonzo Band that toured and recorded with many of Texas’s most iconic musicians, including Jerry Jeff Walker and Michael Martin Murphey. Known as a consummate storyteller, Livingston takes his audiences on wild and colorful rides down the rutted roads of his extensive musical history. His recordings have received wide acclaim, including Album of the Year at the Texas Music Awards for his solo record, Gypsy Alibi. Livingston also leads a multicultural group called Cowboys & Indians (Where East Meets West) that features performers from Texas and India. As a cultural ambassador for the US State Department, Livingston toured over 30 countries. In India, he played with local musicians mixing rhythms, instrumentation, and insights from both east and west. Inspired by these experiences, he wrote original material and produced the Cowboys & Indians show. Livingston conducts workshops, lectures, and seminars on songwriting, touring, and music history. Livingston was inducted into the Texas Music Legends Hall of Fame in 2016 and the West Texas Walk of Fame in 2018. Photo by Valerie Fremin.
