Seattle Folklore Society presents Run Boy Run at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the PNA in the Brick Building. Tickets in advance are $18 general, $16 SFS/PNA members and seniors; kids half price (all tickets are $2 more at the door).

Existing comfortably in the tension between tradition and the musical frontier, Tucson five-piece Run Boy Run blends bluegrass, folk, and the old-timey American vernacular with touches of classical and turn-of-the-century details. Their new album, “Something to Someone,” released last October on Sky Island Records, has been praised by Performer Magazine, All Music Guide, PopMatters, The Guardian, and others. The album was recorded at historic Bear Creek Studios in Woodinville, WA, with producers Ryan Hadlock and Jerry Streeter (The Lumineers, Brandi Carlile, Elephant Revival), whose attention to detail shines in Run Boy Run’s multi-voiced and multi-stringed arrangements. It’s no surprise that the band counts Garrison Keillor of NPR’s “A Prairie Home Companion” and renowned Irish fiddler Kevin Burke among their growing legion of fans.


Evan’s Family Variety Show is from 3-4:30 p.m. Sunday at the PNA in the Brick Building. Free.

Seattle Made tasting event from 5-7 p.m. Sunday at Phinney Books, 7405 Greenwood Ave. N.
