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 National Public Radio's A Prairie Home Companion, Run Boy Run have been making friends and fans alike with their open-ended musical approach and wonderful stage presence. A Prairie Home Companion host Garrison Keillor was impressed enough that he penned the liner notes to the band's debut CD. Run Boy Run come from Tucson, Arizona, and were tagged by Paste magazine as "One of the top 10 Arizona bands to hear now." 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) and bass player Jesse Allen. With three strong female voices, singing separately or in harmony, and deeply rooted familial connection to traditional American music, Run Boy Run didn't come lately to their sound; it's in their collective blood.

The Red Barn Community Music Series in cooperation with KCBX Public Radio and the Live Oak Music Festival will present The Dustbowl Revival in concert.The Dustbowl Revival is a Venice, California-based collective that merges old school bluegrass, gospel, swamp blues and the hot swing of New Orleans to form a spicy roots cocktail. Known for their roaring live sets, the Dustbowl Revival boldly brings together many styles of traditional American music. Imagine Old Crow Medicine Show teaming up with Louis Armstrong?s Hot Fives and Sevens, or Bob Dylan and The Band jamming with Benny Goodman and his orchestra in 1938. It?s infectious, joyous music - a youthful take on time-worn American traditions. The Red Barn Community Music Series is a monthly concert series showcasing local, regional, and national musicians performing old time, bluegrass, swing, Celtic, blues, and other forms of acoustic roots music. No tickets are required but suggested donation for this show is $10 to $15 at the door. Artist Website: dustbowlrevival.com
