MEET THE BANDS
Joe Moore Band
Since arriving in Vermont in 1975, Joe has been a mainstay of the local music scene. He has been a member of numerous bands, including The John Cassell Band, The N-Zones, Big Dolla and The X-Rays.
He has performed in bands opening for musicians as diverse as Martha Reeves, Taj Mahal, Ricky Skaggs and Tower of Power. Along with other local musicians, Joe has shared the stage with Bo Diddley, Joe Lovano, Big Joe Burrell and Archie Shepp.
Since forming in 2010, California-based Dead Winter Carpenters has gained a reputation for steadfast touring, heartfelt performances, and authentic Americana. Portland Metronome puts the quintet “at the forefront of a youthful generation trying to redefine what string music is and what it can do.”
That progressive nature shines through in the band’s latest album, Washoe (February 26). A 12-song collection of original songs by Dead Winter Carpenter members, Washoe’s diverse track list pays tribute to diverse musical influences including classic rock, bluegrass, alt-country, and rockabilly. Highlight tracks include “Midnight Ghost,” “Love Amongst Thieves,” and “Winning Hand,” and the angst-tinged duet, “If I Wrote You A Song.”
At this very moment, the incredible music acts for this event are being determined. More information to follow!
