Frogtown Music is excited to announce the release of Somewhere in the Middle, banjo master Robert Mabe’s first solo project.
Robert is supported by an awesome group of musicians, including Clay Jones on guitar, Patrick McAvinue on fiddle, David Shepherd on bass, Jack Dunlap on mandolin, and guest vocals by Jillian Mabe, Buddy Dunlap and Cindy Abromo. The album contains eight original tunes penned by Robert and a few gems highlighting his love for traditional irish melodies.
Originally from North Carolina, Robert now makes his home in West Virginia with his wife and two daughters. Although rooted in traditional american roots music, Robert has spent the last several years touring the country as front man and banjo player for the more progressive Drymill Road. In Somewhere in the Middle his traditional roots shine through with melodic driven melodies and time-honored story telling lyrics.
