Impeccable Songwriting. Masterful Storytelling. Three part Harmonies. Modern Canadian Roots Music

SHort BIO

Road-warrior festival veterans Red Moon Road make a much bigger sound than one would expect from a trio.  In an impressive, well-choreographed show they incorporate impeccable three-part harmonies, a roots drum kit split entertainingly and pragmatically between two band members, and an acoustic guitar cleverly rigged to also be a bass. Simultaneously, a moustached man plays mandolin, lap steel, banjo and organ (often at the same time), and subtle technological wizardry whirls while the unmistakable soulful voice of one of Canada’s most talented singers soars above it all. The unique show is equal parts polished songwriting, undeniable musicianship, compelling storytelling and engaging showmanship.

QUOTES 

Hillside Festival had the pleasure of having Red Moon Road appear at our festival this summer (2014). They were a huge hit with our audience on every stage they appeared on. They are not only an extremely talented group of musicians and fantastic to work with –the group was an invaluable part of the festival environment/experience with their natural ability to collaborate/adapt with other artists in sessions and completely engaged the audience. I give Red Moon Road a 5-Star recommendation without any hesitation.
— - Sam Baijal, Artistic Director, Hillside Festival
The end of their show is a bittersweet experience – part of you wants to hear more music and the other part wants to rush to the stage and meet the band
— –Julien Desaulniers, Artistic Producer, Festival du Voyageur

An instant favourite of mine, this band has been winning hearts and ears wherever they go. It’s no wonder - their music could travel anywhere, from campfire to concert hall, becoming the constant companion that you can’t wait to introduce your friends to. Their straight up folksy take feels simultaneously old-fashioned and thoroughly modern

Red Moon Road are the perfect festival guests. Great multi-instrumentalists and singers who are not shy about joining in with others, they are a great spark plug for workshops.On the main stage they more than hold their own with great songs, fantastic stories and soaring harmonies. Don’t hesitate to hire them.
— - James Keelaghan, Artistic Director, Summerfolk Festival
