Event

RUNAWAY HOME
Runaway Home, is a "homecoming" of sorts.  It was founded by three powerhouse performers looking for a road back to the music they grew up on and loved! They met by pure happenstance at a small town venue and over the next night around the kitchen table, they discovered the sound they had been searching for.  That sound is strong three part harmony over lyrics that matter, all wrapped-up in an acoustic style reminiscent of '70's era radio. You might call them Retro-Commercial Americana, but Runaway Home is original.  To listen to them is to know them!  Their sound is comfortable, engaging and easily recognizable by those hungry for music with meaning.
Mark Elliott is the troubadour of the group.  He has logged countless miles as a solo folk and bluegrass artist.  The Oklahoma native was a protégé of the legendary artist Tom Paxton.  After opening for him in 1988, Mark found himself relocating to Nashville and signing as a writer with Cherry Lane Music - the first of many Publishing houses.  As a commercial country songwriter for Bluewater Music, Maypop Music and Sony ATV Publishing, Mark found Top 40 success with artists such as Chris LeDoux and Neal McCoy.  Mark also released 7 albums on his own and continues to write prolifically for his own projects as well as artists

Gary Culley is the guitar slinger of the group.  Initially, he cut his teeth on guitar and songwriting as a student at the acclaimed Berklee College of Music. The Chicago native moved to Nashville in 1991 finding success as a staff writer for Sony-Edisto Music, recorded his own CD and became an integral part of the Country Music Hall of Fame's Words & Music Program.  Gary and Mark connected early on in Nashville and were considered musically to be "twin sons from different mothers."  That kinship led to a successful album and touring career, playing clubs and festivals from coast to coast.  The duo went on to win the coveted Kerrville New Folk Award along with many other awards.

Lisa McCarter is the mountain Songbird of the group.  She was born and raised in the heart of the Smoky Mountains. As one-third of the Warner Bros. group, The McCarter Sisters, she released two albums and had seven hits, including three top ten singles.  Lisa grew up on a tour bus, travelling the world with acts such as Randy Travis, Brooks & Dunn and Dolly Parton.  She and her sisters were frequent guests on the Grand Ole Opry and the hit television show Hee-Haw.

Runaway Home is currently rounded out by three great musicians, drummer/percussionist Chip Chipoletti, bassist Ron de la Vega and trading off in the fiddle slot, East TN Mountain fiddler Malinda Fields and Scottish fiddler, Laura McGhee.

This is a show you do not want to miss. World Class music and vocal harmonies with some of the nicest, talented people you will ever meet!
