Billie Renée and Cumberland Gap
Together for more than five years, Billie Renée and Cumberland Gap features Billie Renée Johnson, guitarists Justin Robert and Bill Johnson (Billie’s father), Brent Pack on banjo, Adam Moehlman on fiddle, and Chris Turner on mandolin.
The group performs frequently at bluegrass festivals, presenting its own brand of traditional bluegrass embellished with a unique, modern touch. Cumberland Gap has released a self-titled CD and a live recording from the Blue Ribbon Fox Hunter’s Lodge in Catlettsburg, KY. The band is making its mark on bluegrass music with tight harmony, abundant talent, creativity, and a personality that touches folks on and off the stage.
