Bob Walkenhorst: Combining music & family

An overflow crowd listened to Bob Walkenhorst perform March 15 at Shirkey’s Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. Walkenhorst, raised in Norborne and well known for his work with the Kansas City band the Rainmakers, plays at Shirkey’s every couple of months.  It gives him a chance to see his mother, Mable, a resident at the home. His aunt, Phyllis LaPell, also came for the music as did Walkenhorst’s daughter, Una.
