John Robinson


John Robinson grew up outside of Boston playing and singing many varieties of music. He wound up on a path to fiddle-driven music through a trip to Ralph Stanley's farm for a bluegrass festival, years of playing on friends' porches and in living rooms, and crossing paths with the inimitable Dave Reiner. He joined Dave on guitar and vocals in the bluegrass band Stringtown, and in the Reiner Family Band. John, who also answers to the name "JR," has been to a dozen Fiddle Hells.
