    “Best of all, RUNA sounds like no one else!” – Travis Rogers, Jr., Music Life & Times

    Quickly gaining recognition as one of Irish music’s new “super-groups,” RUNA has been enchanting audiences by pushing the boundaries of Irish folk into Americana and roots music since their formation in 2008. Interweaving the haunting melodies and exuberant tunes of Ireland and Scotland with the lush harmonies and intoxicating rhythms of jazz, bluegrass, flamenco and blues, they offer a thrilling and redefining take on traditional music.

    Seeking to preserve and continue a traditional culture in a modern age, RUNA creates the backbone of its signature roots sound from the musical and geographical diversity of its individually established band members.  Their strive for excellence and creativity blazes a trail for the future of folk music, earning them the reputation as one of the most innovative Irish folk groups of this generation.

    RUNA consists of vocalist and step-dancer, Shannon Lambert-Ryan of Philadelphia, Dublin-born guitarist, Fionán de Barra, Cheryl Prashker of Canada on percussion, Maggie Estes of Kentucky on the fiddle and mandolin, and Zach White of Missouri on mandolin, vocals, banjo, and flat-picking guitar.

    “Timeless and flawless…” – Jim Allford, PA Music Scene

    The group has been honored internationally, winning Top Group and Top Traditional Group in the Irish Music Awards and three Independent Music Awards including Best LIVE Album, Best World/Traditional Song, and Best Bluegrass Song.

    RUNA recently released their fifth album, RUNA: LIVE, which was recorded at the BlackRock Center for the Arts in Germantown, MD on Thursday, March 17th, 2016 Receiving lavish praise on both sides of the Atlantic, the album has been hailed as “an incredible masterpiece” (Marcene Bronson, The Celtic Crier).

    Nashville based Sweet Tea Trio, is currently making their mark on country music. Hailing from three different parts of Alabama, Kate Falcon, Victoria Camp and Savannah Coker have joined forces to give country music fans their first taste of an all female trio since groups like the Dixie Chicks and the Pistol Annies. Sweet Tea Trio are singers, songwriters and musicians but their trademark is their harmonies.

    Recently, Kid Rock (Robert Ritchie) and Vector Management (founder Ken Levitan) signed Sweet Tea Trio via a co-management venture. The girls just finished opening for Kid Rock on his recent tour in 10 arena dates, including Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. They have been listed as one of the new acts to follow in 2018. Said Ritchie in announcing the signing: “These young ladies are some of the most talented, kindhearted and hard-working singers and players I have ever met. They are already becoming fast scholars of the road and writing songs. In my opinion they pick up where the Dixie Chicks and Pistol Annies meet. They are 100% country and I look forward to sharing my 30 years in this business to get them an honest shot at the big time.”

    Kid Rock and his fans fell in love with the girls on his eighth annual Chillin’ the Most Cruise, 2017, where they performed six shows and were invited to return in 2018. They’ve opened for the legendary group, Alabama, and were chosen by LiveNation to be the opener for Bon Jovi in Birmingham, AL. They wowed fans at the CMA Music Fest in Nashville, 2017 and will be bringing their sweet harmonies to the Hard Rock Stage, at the CMA Music Fest, 2018.

    The trio’s self-titled EP entered at no. 11 on the iTunes Country Chart last year. Their song, Rebel Romance, is one of the fastest rising songs in the history of “The Iceman’s New Country Artist Top 40 Chart”, (an internationally syndicated countdown radio show) and has been held the number 1 position for 4 weeks in a row.
