Musical Tribute to Bob Dyer

Folk musicians Dave Para and Cathy Barton, shown above left, will present a tribute at 7 p.m. tonight for Robert "Bob" Dyer, above right, a respected historian from Boonville who died in 2007, leaving behind a rich legacy of poems and songs. Para and Barton, longtime friends of Dyer who worked with him on a number of recordings, concerts and other events, will perform some of his best- known songs about the Missouri River and the region. The duo has studied and presented traditional and contemporary folk music from Missouri and the Ozarks for 30 years. The free event takes place at the Missouri State Archives office, 600 W. Main St. in Jefferson City. Learn more at
