Run Boy Run

Run Boy Run–Saturday, November 5

I heard Run Boy Run at the Folk Alliance conference in Oakland a couple years ago and I was knocked out by their charm, skill, singing and good taste. The band blends bluegrass, folk and old-timey American with touches of classical and turn of the century details. 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 pack a real wallop and I’m thrilled to have them here in a rare trip from their home in Arizona. Listen to a tune here. Reservations: or 510 525-9248.

“When I hear Run Boy Run, it all comes back to me: why I started doing that show back then. I hope they go on forever.” –Garrison Keillor, A Prairie Home Companion.
