Lauded by Billboard as the “Next Hot Trend in Country Music” and likened to a ‘Dixie Chicks for a new generation,’ Runaway June’s organic three-part harmonies and ringing strings are sweeping the nation, leaving a mark on one infatuated audience after another with its “inescapable talent” (AXS.com). The BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records act is comprised of the vocal stylings and musicianship of Naomi Cooke (lead vocals, guitar); Hannah Mulholland (vocals; mandolin); and Jennifer Wayne (vocals; guitar). The trio is receiving rave critical notices from the likes of Billboard, Rolling Stone Country, The Huffington Post, CMT and more for its brand of organic and melodic Country music. Runaway June is the first all-female trio in over a DECADE to earn two Top 40 hits and recently scored a 2018 ACM nomination for New Vocal Duo or Group of The Year. They are finalizing their debut project for Wheelhouse Records, due out later this year, while also preparing to support superstar Carrie Underwood on the road in 2019 for “THE CRY PRETTY TOUR 360,” kicking off May 1.

The Gary Brown Scholarship Scholarship Fund:
Since its inception, the Monterey Cowboy Festival’s (formerly the Monterey Cowboy Poetry & Music Festival) foundation has been charity. As a registered nonprofit 501(c)(3), MCF has had the privilege of giving over $50,000 to local charities over the past 19 years.
The majority of those years were led by the festival’s founder and former Monterey police chief, Gary Brown who lost his battle with lung disease in 2016. Gary founded the Monterey Cowboy Poetry & Music festival in 1999 in an effort to preserve the culture of the American cowboy, while doing all he could to give back to his local community.
In an effort to continue Gary’s commitment to giving, we are honored to announce the formation of the Gary Brown Scholarship Fund. This scholarship fund will focus on students (7th-12th grade) in the Monterey and Santa Cruz counties who are looking to enhance their music education in the areas of school tuition, music camp tuition, private music lessons, or musical equipment purchase/repair.
In 2019, we will be giving $10,000 in scholarship funds and need your help to make it happen! To learn more about the Gary Brown Scholarship Fund or to donate, please visit http://www.montereycowboy.org/scholarship.
