Grammy nominated artist Bobby Britt was born and raised in Chapel Hill NC, and started playing fiddle at age five. In high school, Bobby became fascinated with all styles of music, from Miles Davis, to Wu-Tang to the Grateful Dead. At 18, he moved to Colorado to join Rounder Recording Artists and internationally acclaimed bluegrass band Open Road. Later, he joined Asheville based Town Mountain, and has been touring with them ever since.
He also tours with members of Della Mae, Joe K. Walsh, and David Grisman Quintet veteran Grant Gordy. He was also winner of the IBMA Momentum Performer of the Year. While Bobby’s role for most of his musical life has been about supporting the musical vision of artists that he loves, he recently completed his first solo album with Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz of Mandolin Orange, as well as Josh Oliver and Allison de Groot. This marks an exciting new era of composing, performing and recording exclusively as Bobby Britt.
