Bobby 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 age 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. Bobby recently graduated from Berkley College of Music Roots Program, winning the departments largest scholarship, the Fletcher Bright Award.
He also tours the globe with members of Della Mae, Berklee professor Joe K. Walsh, and David Grisman Quintet Veteran Grant Gordy. Bobby has played with all of the heavy hitters in the genre, is a Grammy nominated recording artist and 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 has recently completed his first solo album with Andrew Marlin, 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. He is touring this summer supporting this forthcoming album and is thrilled to have the above musicians join him on stage at Green Mountain Bluegrass and Roots.
