‘Moonshine Falls’ 3.00pm – 5.00pm
Moonshine Falls, a band that bridges the gap between Traditional Bluegrass and the New Blue movement was formed in New York City by husband and wife duo Mary Noecker (bass and vocals) and Dave McKeon (mandolin, guitar and vocals). The couple is joined by Cesar Moreno (mandolin and vocals) and Clarence Ferrari (fiddle).
Drawing from the canon of bluegrass standards, as well as writing songs that fit seamlessly with those of yesterday, the members of Moonshine Falls create a sound that is steeped in tradition without drowning in it. Their debut CD, “Weeds in the Ballast”, has received considerable airplay on bluegrass radio since it’s release and Dave’s original songwriting has been praised by No Depression, Journal of Roots Music and has won him Podunk’s Bluegrass Songwriting Competition.
Moonshine Falls is making a name for themselves having performed around the Northeast including stages at The Joe Val Festival (MA) , the Wilmington Winter Bluegrass Festival (DE), the Podunk Bluegarss Festival (CT), the Long Isalnd Bluegrass Festival (NY), Basin Blugrass Festival (VT) and Danby Bluegrass Festival (VT) among others as well as performing in the Netherlands and Germany and holding a residency at the New York Botanical Garden during the Chihuly Nights Series.
