Arizona Band Wins Telluride Band Contest!

Tucson's Run Boy Run took first place beating out three other bands last week in the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Competition.
Run Boy Run performing 
Fair Margaret and Sweet William”
 – Telluride 2011
The group performed a haunting version of Fair “Margaret and Sweet William”, a British folk ballad where Sweet William tells Fair Margaret that he is marrying another. She sees the bride and runs off. Her ghost comes into his bridal chamber. He tells his wife he had an evil dream and rides off to see Margaret's corpse. He dies soon after. A rose grew from her grave, and a briar from his, until they grew together.
