Cumberland River Band Gains New Lead Guitar Picker

Cumberland2CUMBERLAND RIVER is proud to announce a new band member, multi-instrumentalist Gary Robinson, Jr. who joins the band on Lead Guitar.

Gary’s incredible talents certainly add to the dynamic sound of this now 6-piece group that includes: Jamie Dean (Banjo, lead & harmony vocals), Joey Jones (Bass), Dustin Middleton (Mandolin, Lead & Harmony Vocals), Jamie Stewart(Dobro), and Gary’s brother in-law, Brad Gulley (Guitar, Lead & Harmony Vocals).

Growing up in Ewing, VA in beautiful Lee County near the Cumberland Gap National Park, Gary was raised in the heart of the Cumberland Mountains - a hotbed for bluegrass music and great bluegrass musicians.  He began playing mandolin at age 8 and not long after began appearing as a guest on the stages of Kentucky’s world famous Renfro Valley. His talent caught the ears of Rickie Simpkins and Wyatt Rice who helped produce a solo project for the young musician which continued to garner attention for Gary throughout the region. It was around this time that Gary helped to form the popular group, Cumberland Gap Connection and stayed with that band for 6 years - recording three albums.
