Gary Mortensen   

 Gary Mortensen has been involved with music all his life – initially, as a woodwind player in school and in the Army Band. But the “Folk Scare” of the sixties hit him hard and he became hopelessly involved in various forms of string band music, including bluegrass, country, Western swing, Eastern swing – everything except rock and roll.

Originally, from Chicago, Gary lived in TX from 2002 through 2011, then spent three years back up north, but has recently returned to TX to stay! He was one of the hosts of Strictly Bluegrass during 2011 and is very excited to be back in the fold!
