As far as banjo players are concerned, few are as innovative or stylistically diverse as is Butch Robins. Butch’s musical diversity is evidenced in the bluegrass world by his inclusion as one of the longest tenured banjoists for Bill Monroe and The Blue Grass Boys, and as bassist for the New Grass Revival, earning him the distinction of being “the one and only New Grass/Blue Grass Boy”. He has been one of the busiest of Nashville’s freelance banjo players and has performed with big-band leader, Harry James, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, Leon Russell.
