We are the Amarugia Ridge Runners! Our name comes from the Amarugia Highlands conservation area south of Freeman, Missouri and roughly 49 miles south of Kansas City, Missouri. We are a group of four young and adventurous musicians raised in the deep history and folklore surrounding the highlands. The Amarugia Highlands have historically been home to mysteries, moonshiners and music. Our connection to this land and love of the rich history has drawn us together. We perform a mix of folk, blues, old country, and bluegrass. John Allin, Jesse Bauerle, Clay Dahman, and Jesse Wilhelmson come together to create amazing music and long-lasting memories.
