Founded in 2001, Little
Rock bluegrass band Runaway Planet evolved out of a
long-time friendship between members and a mutual love for
traditional string-band music. Their music is a mix of
hard-driving bluegrass, three-part harmonies, complex
arrangements and original songs.
Drawing from traditional
influences like Bill Monroe, Flatt & Scruggs and the Stanley
Brothers, they are also inspired by more progressive
bluegrass bands like The Country Gentlemen, The Seldom Scene
and New Grass Revival. With an ever-growing schedule,
Runaway Planet is winning over new fans from traditional
bluegrass lovers to younger fans new to the genre.
