Mr Moon & Grace
Mr Moon & Grace are travellers, currently wintering and wandering around New Zealand they play Old-timey style music in an English and Appalachian style and travel, that's what they do!
They record, sell their music at their shows as they go Its the Medicine Show way too. They invited me on an French adventure last year when we recorded the album Sour Un Arbre In Burgundy, we made some great friends and hope to revisit them all.
Its great to return the favour and invite our friends to share in this adventure with us for the Summer.
Fraser is a fellow Scot now living in London, but 8 years ago he upped sticks and moved to France with his young family, bought a run down near derelict cottage learned how to build it up, started doing house concerts which paid for the renovations and his community clubbed together to pay for this beautiful new album, enough to bring Danny Thompson and a band of top notchers over to record.
BBC 2's Bob Harris and Zoe Ball, BBC Wales Frank Hennessey, BBC Ulsters Cherrie McIlwaine, Ralph McLean, BBC Radio Scotland’s Iain Anderson and Tom Morton are big fans, in fact everyone loves Fraser, he's building to a Union Chapel gig in London in October
Medicine Show Records is a Hi Tech, Hi Fi, Low Cost solution to promoting, recording and releasing music. Our aim is to help our family fold and friends reach more people and have more opportunities to play and sell their music. The Medicine Mobile is more than a mobile studio its effectively a mobile record label.
The Medicine Show Mobile Studio and Concert Duplication System runs from our Camper Van. It offers a tried and tested opportunity for extra tour revenue, travel, accommodation, promotion, and publicity on the road.
The Medicine Show Mobile Studio is equipped to not only record live shows and broadcast/videocast them from the road, but is designed also to duplicate shows ready for sale at the show to the audience of that given show as well as offering accommodation and comfortable travel.
Coupled with the booking opportunities offered by The European House Concert Hub (which was founded by Medicine Music and is celebrating its 5th year) and the promotional opportunities offered by Medicine Show Promo and our webzine community of Roots Music Bloggers and Podcaster at Flyinshoes Review + support from the widely syndicated and popular Medicine Show Radio all support by our fast growing presence across every major social media platform, The Medicine Show network offers an unrivaled comprehensive modern multi-media promotion and tour delivery system.
