The Background Story To Powder & Shot
The Background Story To Powder & Shot … In early 2013 we decided to record…
Run out the Guns was formed in late 2009 and are a five piece acoustic line-up featuring Guitar, Fiddle, Mandolin, Banjo, Bouzouki, Bass and Percussion.
Mixing their own music with songs, shanties, jigs and reels from the distant past to the modern day.
They have been described as a “Folk, Punk, Blues, Rock, Country, Irish Mash-Up”, and are the perfect band to get the ale flowing and feet stomping wherever they play.
Run out the Guns have played more than 500 dates since they formed, also touring with known names such as:
Mad Dog McCrea, Harp & A Monkey, The Lancashire Hotpots, The Oldham Tinkers, Dave Sharp of The Alarm, Blackballed.
The band have also played many festivals including Middlewich Folk & Boat, Shanty UK Festival Ellesmere Port, The Ravonstonedale Festival, Holmfirth Festival of Folk, Gloucester Shanty Festival, Blackthorn Music Festival, Town Hall Sessions Festival. They are also regular performers at Strummercamp, Wigan Diggers, and Boothstown Beer Festival.
