Run Boy Run’s Tapestry of Timeless Bluegrass Sound

By | Archive | No Comments

While Run Boy Run’s bluegrass sound is rooted in the traditional style of the Appalachian South, they are part of a trend to revive innovation in American roots music. Their voices weave a spectacular tapestry around the fiddle’s tight rhythmic front, leading listeners on a musical journey that is dynamic, orchestral, and overflowing with beauty. The whole exceeds the sum of the parts as touches of classical, jazz, and folk express themselves through the old-time core of Run Boy Run’s unique sound.

“Hot instruments and beautiful, sweet harmony!” — Garrison Keillor, A Prairie Home Companion
