More
on Gary Robinson,
Jr.
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.
