The Chris Robinson Brotherhood announce departure of bassist, tour (2016)

The Chris Robinson Brotherhood have announced the departure of original bassist, Mark “Muddy” Dutton. His final show with the band was March 19 at the Rendezvous Festival in Jackson Hole, WY.
“It has been a great adventure. I wish my brothers a long and beautiful journey, as I leave with pride and fond memories,” says Dutton. “I’m looking forward to the rise of The CRB as they continue to bring the old world to the new.”
Robinson adds: “It’s been a great 5 years. We wish Muddy all the best in his future.”
Austin, TX-based bassist George Reiff—who previously recorded and toured with Robinson in New Earth Mud from 2004 through 2006—will fill in throughout the month of April.
The Chris Robinson Brotherhood are currently putting finishing touches on a new studio recording tentatively scheduled for release in summer 2016. They recently completed their first tour of Europe where they performed to packed venues across the continent. The CRB will be back on the road in the U.S. throughout Spring and Summer with festival appearances, including Mountain Jam, High Sierra Music Festival and Lockn’.
