Welcome Back 

March 7, 2022

We announced Friday night at the Convoy of Hope benefit that, after some time away from bluegrass, Robby Boone is back playing banjo with Lonesome Road. It certainly felt like a homecoming being on stage together again.

We are looking forward to trying new material and working on unfinished projects. We will share more information as those plans come together. 

Robby Boone on Banjo Trading Cards 

February 9, 2022

We are pleased to share that our fellow band member       
of 23 years, Robby Boone, was selected to be part of this banjo trading card series from Bluegrass Trading Company. 

From his start in the 1970s, Robby was clearly no ordinary player. His Crowe-style banjo combined with his own signature tone is esteemed nationwide. According to one perceptive fan, “It sounds like he’s driving every note with a sledgehammer!

Congratulations, Rob. We could not be happier for you!
