Runaway Planet

Runaway Planet

Founded in 2001, Little Rock bluegrass band Runaway Planet evolved out of a longtime friendship between members and a passion for traditional string band music. Drawing from traditional influences like Bill Monroe and Flatt & Scruggs as well as progressive influences like The Seldom Scene and New Grass Revival, the band has been compared to Yonder Mountain String Band, The Avett Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show and The Del McCoury Band. Runaway Planet's music is currently receiving airplay throughout the United States and several different countries through the support of community & public radio programming as well as internet radio stations like Pandora and Rhapsody. Their music is a mix of hard driving bluegrass, three-part harmonies, complex arrangements, and original songs. With an ever-growing performance schedule, Runaway Planet is winning over new fans from traditional bluegrass lovers to younger fans new to the genre.
