Saturday, Nov. 15 at 7:30 p.m. — RANDOLPH — Both tasty bluegrass and fresh local produce will be served on Saturday, Nov. 15 at Chandler Music Hall, with a performance by Run Boy Run at 7:30 p.m. and earlier at a farmer’s market starting at 3 p.m. The Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont (NOFA-VT), as part of Agricultural Literacy Week, is sponsoring a farmer’s market in the Esther Mesh Room of Chandler’s Upper Gallery with food created by area restaurants and local organic producers, as well as a photo exhibit titled “Home Grown,” featuring the works of Ben DeFlorio.
Run Boy Run is a young, progressive ensemble from Tuscon, Arizona. The members of the tightly-knit, five-piece group (which includes two pairs of siblings and one husband-wife team) became acquainted at bluegrass festivals and began singing and playing together in 2009. Only a few weeks later, they won the band competition at the Pickin’ in the Pines Acoustic Music Festival in Flagstaff, Arizona. By 2012, their reputation had grown to the extent that they were asked to perform at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Colorado, one of the most prestigious venues in the world of bluegrass music.
After winning at the Telluride festival, Run Boy Run gained even more widespread attention following an appearance on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion radio program. Keillor was so impressed that he asked Run Boy Run to perform on the show again. In addition, he wrote the liner notes for their first full-length album “So Sang the Whippoorwill,” released in March 2013. For more info visit www.chandler-arts.org.
