Chester River Runoff: Home
Chester River Runoff are an original bluegrass band from Maryland's rural Eastern Shore. Their honest, unaffected sound features big harmonies, insightful songwriting, and tight instrumental work, and they preserve in their live shows the warm spirit and humor of friends who first started playing together just to learn their instruments. Since their debut in 2004 the Runoff have played country dives, barn dances, many well known clubs and theaters including the Avalon, Purple Fiddle, Brooklyn's Jalopy, and Ram's Head Live, and have played the main stage at festivals such as Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival, the DC Bluegrass Festival, and Falcon Ridge Folk Fest. They've shared bills with groups ranging from the Seldom Scene to the Fleshtones, Afroman to the Avett Brothers, and even backed up an internationally known opera singer. Through this variety of settings, they have forged connections with diverse audiences without losing touch with their origins in the bluegrass tradition. By looking forward with their own vision and growing with open ears from their roots in bluegrass and country, the Runoff follow in the footsteps of the music's pioneers, who experimented freely and strived to develop their own distinctive styles.
