RUN BOY RUN - Benefit for SNAP!

Doors at 6:30, music at 7pm


Existing comfortably in the tension between tradition and the musical frontier, Run Boy Run's all-acoustic format blends bluegrass, folk and the old timey American vernacular with touches of classical and jazz. From winning the band contest at Pickin' In The Pines 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. 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) with sisters Bekah Sandoval Rolland (fiddle, vocals) and Jen Sandoval (mandolin, vocals), joined by Ryan Alfred (of Sweet Ghosts and past touring bassist for Calexico) on upright bass for this tour.

SNAP is excited to bring Run Boy Run to Spokane during their 2016 tour. All proceeds of this event will benefit SNAP.
