I can't say enough good things about Run of the Mill String Band. I have enjoyed them in a variety of settings for more than two decades. Concerts (large, small and in-between), festivals,contra and square dances, radio shows...workshops and jams. They are superb musicians, entertainers, teachers, dedicated and enthusiastic collectors and purveyors of old time country music...they're just plain good folks. They always "bring it".
I have been deeply involved with "folk music" for more than fifty years, and with old time music for more than forty five years. s an event organizer, radio host, performer and fan. Run of the Mill has my highest recommendation for any venue situation from a family picnic, a contra dance, workshop or festival.

Run of the Mill String Band played at our wedding and helped make the day even more special. Everything they played sounded incredible and our guests continue to praise them in the weeks and months following the wedding. They were very easy to work with helping us choose music, arriving on time, and guiding us through the ceremony with their excellent performance! We would recommend them to anyone who is looking to create a fun, warm and welcoming environment.

Run of the Mill String Band played at our daughter's wedding. Palmer was my daughter's violin teacher for many years and after years of classical training, fiddle tunes were introduced to her. We were bewitched. When we started to plan her wedding, years after those violin lessons, we knew we wanted Palmer and Greg's music to make this celebration in the garden even more special. In the early planning stages, it turned out that the band was already booked on the wedding date we considered, so we bumped back our date a week because it was that important to us that their music provide the backdrop. Our guests were charmed and spoke about the amazing music for months afterwards - the joyful sounds, the beguiling waltz - it was an amazing day. Run of the Mill String Band played before the ceremony when guests were finding seats, creating a special and festive atmosphere. It was perfect. The procession of the bridal party, the bride and her father - wonderful music throughout. After the ceremony, they played on the terrace for cocktails. Some of our guests had not been exposed to their lovely sound and many remarked about the extraordinary talent of these musicians. They were such a hit. With so many details to think about that day, Run of the Mill took care of the music. I recommend them without reservation.

I have danced to the music of Run of the Mill String Band at the local contra dance for yearsI've also had lots of fun calling to their driving old time music at barn dances. They are all talented musicians and great folks as well.

Run of the Mill is a great band, playing the kind of Old time music that really speaks to me. My only criticism is that they live 6 hours away!

FIddleKicks has always enjoyed performing to the music of Run of the Mill String Band. -- we dance best when we have a suitable floor and good music that gives us the perfect clogging "groove".
They have always delivered the energy, drive and rhythm for great old-time music.
