Robby Roberson was born in south Texas and started playing guitar in the mid-sixties after hearing the Beatles play “I Want to Hold Your Hand.” In 2007 the passion for writing and performing songs came into focus and now he performs regularly at local venues, benefits, and music festivals in the Tempe/Phoenix area and around Arizona.
Robby's songs are stories of fact, fiction, joy, and sorrow; all set against a backdrop of the various acoustic stringed instruments he plays. He feels that the instruments are not only a means of accompaniment, but an equal performer. Along side his various styles of instrumentation are his lyrics and vocals that create a balanced harmonic, organic, and original musical style.
Robby is often joined by Ed Garnero (bass, vocal), Michael Mulryan (fiddle) and Jim Banister (percussion) (aka, The Robby Roberson Quartet-www.facebook.com\RobbyRobersonQuartet).
Robby lives in Tempe Arizona.
