About Run Boy Run

"Harmonies, strings, and a respect for heartfelt storytelling" - The Bluegrass Situation

Existing comfortably in the tension between tradition and the musical frontier, Tucson Americana/Bluegrass outfit Run Boy Run blend bluegrass, folk and the old timey American vernacular with touches of classical and turn of the century details. Their new album, I Would Fly, released September 2016 on Sky Island Records, has garnered early praise, as did their three other records from the likes of All Music Guide, Performer Magazine, PopMatters, The Guardian, and more. Their new album features three original songs and one cover of a Carter Family hit, "Hello Stranger". Its no surprise that the band counts Garrison Keillor of NPR's 'A Prairie Home Companion' and renowned Irish fiddler Kevin Burke among their growing legion of fans.

The band is brother and sister Matt Rolland (fiddle, guitar) and Grace Rolland (cello, vocals), sisters Bekah Sandoval Rolland (fiddle, vocals) and Jen Sandoval (mandolin, vocals). With three strong female voices, singing separately or in harmony, and deeply rooted familial connection to traditional American music, Run Boy Run didnt come lately to their sound; its in their collective blood.

The unique sound of the band is rooted in the traditional music of the Appalachian South, continuing a sense of innovation in traditional American music put forth by bands such as Nickel Creek, Crooked Still, and The Wailin' Jennys. Run Boy Run continues this journey into music that is dynamic, orchestral, and brimming with beauty. Three strong female voices weave a tapestry of sound, and the award-winning fiddlers cut a path for a tightly formed rhythmic front. Every arrangement is at its core captivating.

From winning the band contest at Pickin In The Pines (mere weeks after forming in 2009) and a special appearance at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in 2012, to two appearances on NPR's 'A Prairie Home Companion' (host Garrison Keillor was also impressed enough that he penned the liner notes to the band's debut album), they were tagged by Paste Magazine as One of the top 10 Arizona bands to hear now. They've been making fans across the U.S. with their open-ended musical approach and dynamic stage presence, and will take that live show back across the country coast to coast this summer and fall.
