Buffalo Bill, with Dr. Jo, Flower of the Prairie Show

Some Finn Campers may remember Bill Boycott from the 1970s, when he and friends often played music in camp country around a campfire. Over the last 25 years, Buffalo Bill has been a full-time entertainer, harmonizing the good old western songs of long ago plus many original songs on the fiddle, banjo, mandolin and guitar, as well as being a world-class yodeler. He was also a member of the Grammy Award–winning New Christy Minstrels in 2005–2008.

Dr. Jo performs on vocals, banjo, and guitar. She was a strolling minstrel for years with the Henry Ford Museum /Greenfield Village Players, where she met Bill. They have been performing and touring nationwide for the past eight years. This is a free performance, but donations would be appreciated.
