Julie and I are going went to Rothbury!

A friend and well-known local musician, Ralston Bowles, is going to be on stage with Bob Dylan. (Actually Ralston was not on stage with Bob Dylan. Ralston was on the same stage as Bob Dylan. My error. Ralston was on at 3:45 pm; Bob Dylan came on at 8:30 pm.)

We heard Toots and the Mayans, The Yonder Mountain String Band, Ralston Bowles, Willie Nelson and band, and Bob Dylan and band.

Ralston recently was diagnosed with cancer, had some operations, and faces intensive cancer therapy. Musician friends of Ralston’s requested that the Rothbury committee allow Ralston to fulfill a life-long dream: to perform with Bob Dylan. It is going to happen.

In my early years as a pastor at Bella Vista Church, Rockford, MI, Ralston would often lead worship. He is a gifted artist, creative musician and captivating singer. Julie and I are thrilled that he is scheduled at Rothbury, Sunday evening.

Rothbury is about an hour north of Grand Rapids and has become a major venue for summer music festivals.
