BIO: Bandits on the Run is a musical trio comprised of Sydney Shepherd, Regina Strayhorn and Adrian Enscoe, known for their distinct combination of cello, guitar, accordion and found percussion with sophisticated three part harmony and a rotating lead singer. The Brooklyn based outfit sprang from a chance encounter while busking in NYC’s bustling subways, and burst onto the national stage in 2019 when their song “Love in the Underground” was featured on the NPR Tiny Desk Contest’s Top Shelf, proclaiming “the band orchestrates a symphony of sound and story through its impressive musicianship and marvelous harmonies.” After recording their 2021 EP “Now Is The Time” with producer Ryan Hadlock (Brandi Carlile, The Lumineers) the Bandits took to the screen, devising a short musical film “Band At The End Of The World” commissioned by Prospect Theater Company. Since then they have continued to explore the nexus of folk and theatrical storytelling, composing music for the Netflix animated series “Storybots”, scoring the movie "The Same Storm”, adapting several songs from texts by William Shakespeare for a production of As You Like It, receiving an NEA grant for a new musical with Prospect Theater Company, and working on a stage musical project with writer-director Peter Hedges and actor-musician Christopher Sears, all the while touring the globe with appearances at the Cambridge Folk Festival, Floydfest, Milwaukee Summerfest, Americanafest, and the F1 Singapore Grand Prix. 2024 will see the Bandits putting the finishing touches on their next album after going on tour with Tony Award Winner John Gallagher Jr, alongside whom Enscoe starred in the 2023 Arena Stage run of the critically acclaimed, Broadway-bound musical “Swept Away” featuring the music of the Avett Brothers. Come see them in your town soon!
