Mandolinist Eric Robertson attended high school at the Weaver Academy for the Performing and Visual Arts in Greensboro, North Carolina and recently graduated from Berklee. At Berklee, he developed his passion for songwriting and mandolin playing, and in his explorations found connections between R&B and country music. Robertson’s love of performing resulted in the formation of his band, the Boston Boys.
In addition to touring internationally with various folk, traditional, and world music projects, Robertson collaborates with rising singer-songwriters Emily Elbert, Tubby Love, and Jenna Belle. Robertson’s debut album is entitled Listen and is available on iTunes.
