About

Combining a respect for tradition with an ear for innovation, this seasoned New Hampshire band has been entertaining audiences at town fairs, church halls, and concert stages since 2003. Their influences included Bill Monroe, Doc Watson, Johnny Cash, Earl Scruggs, Ricky Skaggs, Emmylou Harris, and many more. Click here to view/download the 2019 Bow Junction Brochure (PDF).
Randy Hencke is bass player for Bow Junction, a music quartet in Concord New Hampshire that plays bluegrass and Americana
Bass

Randy Hencke

Randy came to bluegrass bass after stints in rock, folk, klezmer, classical tuba and countless open mikes. Favorite artists include Alison Krauss, Steeldrivers, Tim O'Brien, Gillian Welch and Seldom Scene but there's always room for jigs, reels and traditional tunes. Harmony singing is his favorite part of performing with Bow Junction - so closing most every gig with Seven Bridges Road is a Bow Junction tradition that has special meaning.
Linda Magoon is mandolin player for Bow Junction, a music quartet in Concord New Hampshire that plays bluegrass and Americana
Mandolin

Linda Magoon

"MandoLinda" Magoon was introduced to the mandolin by David Surette at the Concord Community Music School where she studied under him for many years. Bow Junction was formed from one of the Music School's folk ensembles, where Linda met up with Russ and their original fiddle player, Kathy Barnes, to form the band. Linda's influences include Rhonda Vincent, Johnny Cash, Allison Kraus, and Doc Watson. A recovering banjo player, Linda also plays guitar, mandolin, and a very occasional tamborine with Mark Ledgard in his folk rock band, Tapas.

Guitar

Russ Aubertin

Russ is Bow Junction's guitar ace. A proficient fingerstyle guitarist, Russ studied solo guitar under David Surette at the Concord Community Music School for many years before discovering the joys of playing in a band at the Music School's folk ensemble. Now an accomplished flatpicker, Russ's influences include Tony Watt, Doc Watson, and Norman Blake. Russ is also Bow Junction's prolific and official songwriter.
Glen Leathers is banjo player for Bow Junction, a music quartet in Concord New Hampshire that plays bluegrass and Americana
Banjo

Glen Leathers

Glen is Bow Junction’s newest member and is equally at home on banjo and guitar. John Hartford, Glen Campbell and Gordon Lightfoot were Glen’s earliest musical heroes. Living in Chicago for most of the 1970s, where Glen began his performing career, he was also exposed to the music of John Prine and Steve Goodman. Glen has performed as a solo act for many years and you can hear his Chicago-blues influence in his playing, which melds seamlessly into bluegrass and Americana.
