Join us at the Mitchell Opera House on August 3rd at 7:00 p.m. for some old time country and gospel! Robert Lester began playing and singing at the age of 13. His biggest influence has been the Stanley Brothers. He first began performing professionally with his band, Keeping Tradition, in 2004. The band recorded one album, which featured Mitchell Van Dyke on the banjo and James Price on the fiddle. One song from the album, “A Robin Built a Nest on Daddy’s Grave,” was featured on a compilation CD by Simm’s Records in Nashville! Robert has shared the stage with Larry Sparks and Ralf Stanley II among others. His last professional job was a lead singer with Larry Gillis’ band, of the Gillis Brothers.
