Blue Moon Soup, the acoustic folk quartet from Yellow Springs, Ohio, entrances audiences with an eclectic mix of jam band staples, folk and bluegrass traditionals, and originals tunes that fuse folk and psychedelia to establish a unique identity in an increasingly homogenized musical landscape. As evidenced by the presence of a fiddle, mandolin, guitar, and upright bass, Blue Moon Soup's bluegrass and celtic folk roots run deep. On stage, trailside or fireside, Blue Moon Soup's music brings a sincerity and spirit to the stage that sweeps wallflowers onto the dance floor, and an enthusiasm that engages the audience into the wee hours. After a Blue Moon Soup show, we hope your feet are tired and your ears yearn for more.
From dive bars to concert halls, Blue Moon Soup quickly attracted a fervent core group of fans throughout the broader Dayton area, and went on to augment its burgeoning following by appearing at a variety of regional musical festivals in Ohio and toured throughout the region, making inroads into Michigan, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Indiana.
Lonely Mountain, Blue Moon Soup's first LP, was released on Christmas Eve 2011 to broad acclaim. Although the band's current primary focus is to broaden its reach in Ohio metro areas, they are crafting a second LP for a third quarter 2013 release, and continuing to reach out to new fans; young and old, near and far. $7.00,
