Run Boy Run in concert
Green Valley Recreation, West Center
Run Boy Run has emerged as “a prevalent force in the desert music scene.” After winning the coveted Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Contest in 2011, Run Boy Run has been busy crafting a growing catalog of traditional, original, and familiar material for performance on A Prairie Home Companion, at national and regional festivals, and at favorite local music venues.
The unique sound of Run Boy Run is rooted in the traditional music of the Appalachian South. Run Boy Run is dynamic, orchestral, and overflowing with beauty. Three strong female voices weave a spectacular tapestry of sound. Award-winning fiddle cuts a path for a tightly formed rhythmic front. Brother and sister, Matt and Grace Rolland, have fiddle music running through their blood. Raised with bow and rosin on every bedside table, Run Boy Run was a natural fit. Sisters, Bekah and Jen Sandoval, grew up deeply ingrained in the Bluegrass festivals of Arizona, so they too found a home in Run Boy Run. Jesse Allen was brought up on opera and western swing, and grew to love the natural fusion inherent in American music. The sound of Run Boy Run is truly unique and every arrangement is – at its core – beautiful.
