The Outskirts is a pop music band from Bowling Green made up of Ruth Burch (guitar and vocals), Janine Keirnan (bass and vocals), Susan Morris (vocals) and Alice Templeton (guitar and vocals). Nathan Williams joined the group as guest artist on the Running from Rescue CD.
The group was formed by members of the larger Lender Be band and originally called themselves Second Nature. In 1993 or 1994 the group changed the name to The Outskirts. Susan Morris has described their music as "a wonderful eclectic mix of folk, soft rock, country and blues."
