Folk Music Ensemble
Formed in 2011, Shenandoah Run is a DC-based band with a vision—to keep folk music alive and fresh! Fidelity to this vision has been key to our success. Their performances pay tribute to vintage Americana and contemporary folk music, with a little country thrown into the mix. Their top-notch musicianship and soaring harmonies lend a fresh voice to classic and contemporary folk and Americana music and often entice audiences to join in for that irresistible sing-along.
Shenandoah Run is comprised of founder Bob Melissinos (vocals and guitar), Jill Nelson (vocals, guitar and percussion), Jim Thorne (vocals, guitar, mandolin and flute), Renee Moyer (vocals and percussion), Pam Ferguson (vocals and fiddle), Joe Dickey (banjo), John Werntz (bass) and Robert Burleson (lead guitar). With a winning blend of voices and instruments, their performances attract large sold out audiences.
