The Robertson Boys have a distinctive style, and their talents include vast imaginative eclectic selections of genre from the traditional favorites to today’s contemporary hits.
What sets them apart from many bluegrass influenced bands of today? They are known for their talent in harmonizing, as all members are gifted vocalists as well as versatile in their instrumental skills.
Rick Robertson has played music as long as he can remember. Being his father’s sons, both Jack and David inherited their father’s enthusiasm and talent. Playing music for their peers and teachers in school, Jack and David immediately were referred to as the Robertson Boys and the name has led to their calling.
Don Cruthis has been a lifelong friend and musical comrade of Rick’s and witnessed Rick’s son’s talents grow from their childhood. Don, who possesses the same talents and passion for Bluegrass, always played his music with Rick and the Boys and the four of them have been pickin’ out toe tappin ~ hand slappin’ music every since.
The Robertson Boys were thrilled to gain a fifth element to their band when Philip Swing joined the group in 2013. Phil’s experience in the music field performing a mixture of genres was just the energy the Boys were looking for to further expand their vision of artistic style.
Recently the Boys added Ashlyn Nelson to the band. Ashlyn has a beautiful voice, and her vocals along with the violin added the final touch to The Robertson Boys sound.
