We’ve already nailed our colours to the Seth Mulder & Midnight Run mast. 💙 Yes, we’re huge fans of these guys. And hot on the heals of their signing with Nashville-based Billy Blue Records and a 2020 IBMA Momentum Band of The Year nomination, we’re proud to announce Seth Mulder & Midnight Run Europe 🇪🇺 2022 . It’s some ways off just yet, but we’re pretty sure what to expect musically from #MidnightRunBluegrassEurope2022, much more of this kind of high-energy entertainment, we reckon.
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. 👍
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 Nashville-based Billy Blue 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.’

Midnight Run & Billy Blue Records
The most recent Midnight Run milestone was their July 2020 signing with Nashville-based Billy Blue Records 🐐 💙 The boutique label has adopted an aggressive approach to padding out its roster with already established and award-winning artists since its 2018 formation by Jerry Salley, Ed Leonard and Dottie Leonard Miller, meaning Midnight Run will be stablemates with the likes of Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Carolina Blue, Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers, Appalachian Roadshow, Alan Bibey & Grasstowne, Donna Ulisse and Jason ‘The Ramblin’ Fiddler’ Barie. An aggressive future-focused label for an aggressive future-focused young band. We couldn’t think of a better match (unless we were included in there somewhere 😉 ).
