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 Thompsonand 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
With Kris Kristofferson calling his song Last Man Standing, “The best he’s heard in 30 years”. His first album Keep What's Left was called “The Equivalent to Lomax’s field recordings for the 21st Century “. Drew partnered with Warner Bros to release “the BP Blues” to help victims of the oil spill in 2010, and also worked with Dr. John to record the Bobby Charles inspired Deepwater Memorial EP. His third album, Sharecropper's Whine has been deemed, "a Cajun inspired Americana Masterwork", and made the Euro Americana chart for several months in 2012. Landry has performed at Legendary Venues & Festivals around the world from Jazz Fest in his native Louisiana to The Paradiso in Amsterdam and shared the stage with Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam, Johnny Winter, Lazy Lester, Billy Joe Shaver, the Angola prison Band, the last remaining members of Slim Harpo’s band, Carol Fran, David Allen Coe, Amy Helm, Shannon McNally, and many other great American performers.…

"MEDICINE in the modern sense is perceived to be a treatment for ailment, but in the ancient sense particularly in the minds of Native Americans, medicine is all that is good in nature connecting the spirit world with the physical. The Medicine of music can be a direct connection with all it is to be human and also our best prescription for the disconnecting-ailments of our modern culture"
