Live Music by Robert Mabe at Lost Barrel Brewing
September 6 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
As a kid growing up in North Carolina, Robert was surrounded by many great bluegrass musicians. In fact, his grandfather was a guitar/bass player who also performed at The Grand Ole Opry. When his parents gave him a banjo at age 12, he began taking lessons and attending local bluegrass jams and he was soon hooked. Listening to Earl Scruggs, Bela Fleck, and all things bluegrass, he also became interested in other styles of music including Jazz, Irish, and Blues. While taking banjo lessons he would also seek out piano, guitar, and sax teachers to translate their styles to banjo. This was not just for the love of the banjo but also for the love of live performance.
