SETH MULDER & MIDNIGHT RUN TOUR TEASERS
We’ve already nailed our colours to the Seth Mulder & Midnight Run mast. 💙 Yes, we’re huge fans of these guys. Fresh off signing with Mountain Fever Records and hot on the heels of their 2020 IBMA Momentum Band of the Year award nomination, we’re proud to announce Seth Mulder & Midnight Run Europe 🇪🇺 2022 . And we’re pretty sure what to expect musically from #MidnightRunBluegrassEurope2022; much more of this kind of high-energy entertainment, we’d wager.
We’re hugely stoked to be working with the Midnight Run guys. Of the collaboration, Seth adds:
“We’re so excited to be teaming up with mygrassisblue.com. They have a passion for the music and a drive to connect bands with new audiences all over Europe! Plus they’re great people to boot. We had the opportunity of meeting them on our last tour in Ireland and really enjoyed the time we got to spend around them. They’ve got great things in the works and we’re looking forward to working with them over the next few years.”
As are we, boys, as are we. 👍
– Bobby Powell, Carolina Blue
SETH MULDER & MIDNIGHT RUN THE LOW-DOWN
Easily one of the most entertaining young bluegrass acts on the scene today and recently having signed with Mountain Fever Records, Seth Mulder & Midnight Run were formed in early 2015. Comprising young like-minded musicians, all of whom are graduates of various college music programs, the band has spent the last 5-plus years honing its high-energy act of blazin’ solos, tight harmonies, and questionable jokes, mostly as long-standing resident performers at the Ole Smoky Moonshine Distillery in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Tied to the rich traditions of bluegrass music but yet willing to stretch boundaries, they aim to deliver a ‘fresh approach to the High Lonesome sound’; this is solid ‘old-style’ bluegrass that appeals to the purist. But it’s more than that. This is also bluegrass for the soon-to-be converted, an act that ensures the uninitiated sit up, take note, tap their feet, and call for an encore. As the Midnight Run official bio states, ‘it is about connecting with the audience and leaving them with a memory that will last a lifetime.’

SETH MULDER & MIDNIGHT RUN Mountain Fever Records
The most recent Midnight Run milestone was their early 2021 signing with Mountain Fever Records, making the Midnight Run posse stablemates with the likes of Junior Sisk, Volume Five, Dave Adkins, Hammertowne, Deeper Shade of Blue and Nothin’ Fancy, to name but a few.
Of the signing with Mountain Fever Records, Seth adds:
“I know I speak for all of us when I say we’re excited to be teaming up with Mark Hodges and Mountain Fever Records. Mark has a fantastic team that we had the pleasure of working with a few weeks ago as we recorded at Mountain Fever Studios. We’re thrilled to get some brand-new music out to radio stations everywhere and even more excited for all of you to hear it.”
– Jesse Smathers, The Lonesome River Band
SETH MULDER & MIDNIGHT RUN DISCOGRAPHY
Midnight Run’s first full-length label release 💿 with Mountain Fever Records is in the works 🚧 with plans for it to be released well in advance of their May 2022 European tour. Their current discography of independent releases, including their most recent March 2021 release Traveling Kind, is as follows:
Traveling Kind (2021)
From The Band (March 2021)
Eleven months ago, we had the idea to create an album just for fun that our fans could enjoy, and we could be proud of, an album that would document where we are as musicians and as a band at this point in our musical journey. With the help of our friend Troy Boone and Bearberry Recording Studio, we were able to make our dream a reality.
Traveling Kind features 13 songs from some of our favorite writers and musical inspirations. New songs, old classics done with a twist, and some of our most requested songs are all included on this album.
So sit back and relax as you go for a ride with the Traveling Kind.
Walking The Dog
Availability: Available on the Midnight Run website.
Hits of The Holler (2019)
Sixteen fan favourites and bluegrass standards.
One More Night (2018)
Ten of the band’s favorite songs including a mix of originals and covers.
Live From The Holler (2017)
