 “This is folk music for everyone to love.” – Maeri Ferguson, Glide Magazine

Existing comfortably in the tension between tradition and the musical frontier, Tucson Americana Run Boy Run blends bluegrass, folk and the old timey American vernacular with touches of classical and turn of the century details. Their new album, “I Would Fly”, available 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 new original songs and one cover of a Carter Family hit, “Hello Stranger”. It’s 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) and 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 didn’t come lately to their sound; it’s in their collective blood. Ryan Alfred (Sweet Ghosts, ex-Calexico) will play bass.

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.

Hubby Jenkins of the Carolina Chocolate Drops
Friday, Oct 14 at Monterey Court
Mitzi Cowell opens

Tickets online here    Also at:
Antigone Books- 411 N 4th- 792-3715
Dark Star Leather in Plaza Palomino – Swan at Ft Lowell-881-4700
Monterey Court – 505 W Miracle Mile









At 26, HUBBY JENKINS is a talented multi-instrumentalist who endeavors to share his love and knowledge of old-time American music. Born and raised in Brooklyn he delved into his Southern roots, following the thread of African American history that wove itself through country blues, ragtime, fiddle and banjo, and traditional jazz.  Since 2010 he has been an integral part of the GRAMMY AWARD winning Carolina Chocolate Drops while he continues to make solo performances.



Mitzi Cowell, to put it simply, is a badass lead guitarist. From folk to blues to gutsy rock n’ roll, Mitzi has earned a reputation as one of the hardest working and caring musicians in Tucson. With several CDs of original music and classic blues under her own name, Mitzi also acts as producer, recordist, and session player for other artists and projects locally and nationally.

Mitzi’s music is intelligent and infectiously fun with a rhythmic grounding in blues, R&B, and other American roots music. Imagine Lyle Lovett on mushrooms, or Jane Siberry if she were born in Clarksdale, Mississippi and hired the Meters as a rhythm section.

Mitzi originally learned folk-blues finger-picking as an adolescent from master Ken Tucker, and honed her electric chops gigging and recording with numerous artists in blues, R&B, classic rock, funk, and original projects. She gained her New Orleans-style sensibilities and groove through immersion, gigging and recording in the Crescent City, bringing it all back to the desert to create a style uniquely her own.

$14 advance, $17 day of.  Show begins at 6 30. Doors open at 5.

Reservations strongly suggested, CALL for dinner table/seat reservations at 520- 207-2429
