Music obsessive. History Geek. Southerner. Guitar Player. Public Historian. Teacher. Writer. Fan, Bob Beatty grew up devouring his mom’s Beatles and dad’s Hank Williams and bluegrass records. Throughout his life he’s interwoven his love of punk rock, the Allman Brothers Band, and the Jam Depression collective as a historian, fan, and musician. It was only a matter of time that enduring passion culminated in a Ph.D. and publication of Play all Night! Duane Allman and the Journey to Fillmore East. A cultural entrepreneur, Bob spent more than 25 years working in nonprofits and museums in senior leadership roles before he founded the Lyndhurst Group in 2016. As a public historian, a musician, a storyteller, and a family man, Bob focuses on what brings people together as a community and as citizens of the world through the unending conversation.
