Folklife CD Release Tour!!

Music for YOU this & next week in MI,IL,WI,MN,IA,NJ,NY,CT,VT,MA 

Hello there!

Tour these next two weeks to MI,IL,WI,MN,IA,NJ,NY,CT,VT and MA!  (and on into 2017)

Last night the Folklife Project began our CD Release Tour!

Led by my friend, the ‘Yo Yo Ma of the banjo’, Jayme Stone, this tour’s concerts feature the twelve new songs – musical heirlooms – from our album. I love singing the wild, humble heart of these songs: Creole calypso, Sea Island spirituals, Shape-Note folk hymns, a sultry ballad and stomp-down Appalachian dance tunes.

What a pleasure is is to zigzag across the midwest and northeast as Spring awakens (or hides in the tree roots).  I just finished my solo album, and have some big news I’m going to share in the next letter.  But for now…please come out to a show!  I’m so utterly thrilled to be playing this beautiful music with these incredible musicians.

Warmly, Moira
