Sugar Run began as the husband and wife team of Mike (banjo, guitar and vocals) and Bonnie Johnson (bass fiddle and vocals), and has grown to include Geoff White on fiddle and vocals, Rachel Johnson on Fiddle, and Stanley Asbury on the rhythm and flat-pickin’ style guitar and vocals.Our musical repertoire consists primarily of traditional music of the Southern Appalachian and Piedmont regions in the style of older (and some contemporary) Bluegrass, Old-Time, old “Country” music, a few Cajun tunes (in French, by Geoff) and some ancient ballads and tunes with roots back to the Scottish, Irish, and English lands. Our music includes songs of: love-gone-bad; train wrecks; bad-men and hangings; murders; ghosts and hauntings; moonshine whiskey; and death and Redemption. (Many, if not all those themes may occur in the same song!). We also include songs of humor as well as peppy fiddle tunes suitable for flat-footin’, square dancing, or just standing around and tapping your feet.
