LUNCH WITH BOOKS: Coffee House Music Session with R.J. Gaudio - Troubadour

August 02, 2022
12:00pm - 1:00pm

Calendar Event Photo

Robert J. Gaudio is a husband, the father of three children, a grandfather of four, an actor and director of local theater productions, and a criminal-defense attorney with the Ohio County Public Defender’s office. He has practiced law for over 25 years after working for various amounts of time as a steel-mill worker, a university professor, a fine-dining chef, and a restaurant manager. He's been playing instruments since he was 7 and has written music since the age of 17. Musical influences span over half a century –including the big bands, Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Ricky Skaggs, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, and Lady Gaga to name only a few. Bob has performed in coffee houses in the 1970s in Morgantown and learned to love the acoustic genre and the socially-aware tunes that arose from the early 1960s in Greenwich Village. He will render those kinds of songs and some others when he appears.
