“I wish to say that it was a great pleasure to be associated with Midnight Run. They delivered some of the finest classic bluegrass ever played on these shores, which sounded fresh every night. Add to the above a great work ethic (while still having fun), great personalities, and communication skills, and you get a band that tick all the boxes. ”
— John Nyhan, Music Promoter
“Hearing you guys play was one of the best parts of my trip! You guys are so wonderful at what you do! Can't wait to see you next time! ”
— New Jersey
“Close your eyes and listen to these guys and they sound as if they have been playing together for the last thirty years. With virtuosic ability to communicate via songs and on instruments they crafted their shows to a fine art while still managing to retain exuberance and spontaneity to delight audiences at Moniaive Michaelmas Bluegrass Festival. Unbelievably brilliant now I shudder to think what they will be like in thirty years! ”
— C. Paul Lyttle, Artistic Director, Moniaive Michaelmas Bluegrass Festival, Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland.
“I watched you guys last week in Gatlinburg, you totally blew us away, and we will be telling the whole of Liverpool England about you guys!”

Midnight Run EPK
Originating in the Gateway of the Great Smoky Mountains, Midnight Run began its journey in February of 2015, at the Ole Smoky Moonshine Distillery in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, where they became a permanent staple of everyday life at the distillery. Midnight Run is a high-energy, Tennessee-based bluegrass band made up of four like-minded musicians and graduates of college music programs. They set out to create a group that is tied to the rich traditions of bluegrass music and offers up a fresh approach to the “High Lonesome" sound.
Midnight Run stays true to their musical roots with tight harmonies and reverence for “old-style” bluegrass music, all while stretching the boundaries of the genre with their song selection, stage antics, and exciting performance.
From the moment they step on stage, you’ll feel like you are in the hills of East Tennessee, sitting on the front porch, listening to some of the finest music that the Smoky Mountains have to offer.
In the fall of 2018, Midnight Run completed their first studio album, “One More Night.” The band also has two live projects; “Live From The Holler” Volume one and two that they recorded at Ole Smoky Moonshine Distillery in Gatlinburg, Tennessee in 2016.
In the Fall of 2018 Midnight Run completed their first international tour where they spent 20 days performing across Ireland, Scotland, and England. Including headlining the 10th Annual Moniaive Michaelmas Bluegrass Festival where they played to sold out, standing room only crowds every night of the festival.
with over 200 shows a year, they find themselves playing to audiences from all over the world on land and sea.
You don't want to miss this great, up-and-coming band, so be sure to see them in the Smoky Mountains, on a Danny Stewart Bluegrass Cruise or out on the road at a venue near you.
