    Come hear RUN BOY RUN, a five-member band hailed for its soaring harmonies and beautiful acoustic instrumentation, as they celebrate the release of their newest studio album, Something to Someone. The band's Payson stop is part of their second national tour. Defying easy labeling, Run Boy Run blends streams of Americana, bluegrass, gospel and jazz music into their unique compositions. Their sound features captivating three-part female harmony and masterful fiddle work. Run Boy Run includes two-time Arizona State Fiddle Champion Matt Rolland, Bekah Sandoval Rolland (fiddle), Grace Rolland (cello), Jen Sandoval (mandolin), and Jesse Allen (bass). Winner of the prestigious Telluride Bluegrass Festival band contest, Run Boy Run has twice played to an audience of millions on the Prairie Home Companion show on National Public Radio. Host Garrison Keillor was so taken with this young band that he wrote a glowing endorsement for their first album, So Sang the Whippoorwill: "Hot instruments and beautiful, sweet harmony singing -- that's all you need in the world today!" RUN BOY RUN will be joined by THE LITTLEST BIRDS, a nationally touring cello and banjo duo from the Eastern Sierra of California, for an opening set. Featuring David Huebner on cello and Sharon Martinson on claw hammer banjo, The Littlest Birds have taken their unique Americana sound across 34 U.S. States, and Canada since 2010. Their acoustic instrumentation brings to life "refreshing, old-time folk hits that chronicle a simple and idyllic standard of living" (Good Times, Santa Cruz). They have delighted audiences as far and as wide as the Vancouver Folk Music Festival in B.C., the California Bluegrass Association's Father's Day Bluegrass Festival in Grass Valley, and the Beartrap Summer Festival in Casper, Wyoming, the Littlest Birds have "a lovely sound that embraces listeners simultaneously with the familiar and the new."
