3. Music in the Wild with Runaway Home


WHAT: Americana band Runaway Home (out of Nashville) will be performing at Wilderness Station at Barfield Crescent Park. This event is free. Runaway Home is a Panoramic-Americana band founded by two intrepid dreamers and schemers who share a love for music and the places it takes us all. Their music begins close to the heart but is bound for distant vistas. Pulling from diverse musical backgrounds, Runaway Home blends their sound whiskey-smooth and harmonically strong, with a plaintive and rootsy edge. Their music leads to much more than green rooms, stages, and radio waves, though. The band enjoys connecting with communities – subjecting themselves to and experiencing the lives of those who make their homes along the blue highways, glistening skylines, and open spaces just outside the band van windshield.

WHEN: Friday, January 31 from 6- 8:30p

WHERE: Wilderness Station at Barfield Crescent Park, 301 Volunteer Road, Murfreesboro
