Sneak Peek from the Stacks: Notable Facial Hair in Folk Music, vol. 1

Photographs of Bob Ross, Philip St. Claire Photography

To help you get through the rest of the week, we present the impeccably groomed whiskers of folk music crooner Bob Ross. His album on Folkways, American Folk Songs for Men, is full of romantic renditions of traditional love songs. His voice, like his beard, is exquisite.
