Chester River Association presents
Chester River Runoff
April 5 @ 7pm
Tickets: $25  for single/ $40 for couple (Ticket Price Includes CRA Annual Membership, hotdogs, sodas & popcorn)

Chester River Runoff is an original bluegrass band from Maryland's rural Eastern Shore.  The quartet's 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 got together simply to hang out and learn their instruments. Since forming in 2004 the Runoff have played country dives, barn dances, many well known clubs and theaters including the Avalon, Purple Fiddle, Brooklyn's Jalopy Theatre, 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 manage to forge connections with the audiences for those groups without losing touch with the bluegrass tradition.  By following their own vision and growing with open ears from their roots in bluegrass and country, the Runoff hearken back to the early days of bluegrass music, when musicians experimented freely and each band had a distinctive sound.
