The Sherbino Theater presents Moors & McCumber, a Western folk/Americana inspired duo that Grammy award winning producer Lloyd Maines says ” should be playing every major Festival in the country. They bring it all to the stage and deliver it in a big way”
In one sentence, Moors and McCumber create that rare chemistry that happens when two gifted singer- songwriters and multi-instrumentalists perfectly complement each other’s strengths, a modern day version of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. In 100 Words….James Moors and Kort McCumber grew up in different places and listening to different kinds of music – classical, rock, bluegrass, you name it. But when they met ten years ago they knew they’d found something golden. Since then, they’ve been cultivating their wide-ranging musical influences in songs that delve into love and life through haunting lyrics, soaring harmonies, and dazzling instrumental proficiency.
Of their latest album, Pandemonium, Jay Snyder says, “The folk revival has been running rampant across America right now. Some of it’s hot and some of it’s not, just like any genre that experiences a resurrection long after its golden era. Along comes Moors and McCumber, a pair of Midwesterners who are rabid to do the genre justice, and justice they do it across the twelve tracks of Pandemonium, an album chockful of wistful multi-instrumentalism, Appalachian vocal harmonies and songwriting straight from the heart. Dylan, Guthrie and Earle are the names that come to mind whenever their enchanting tunes come full blast out of a good set of stereo speakers.”
Moors & McCumber will play the Sherbino Theater on Tuesday December 4, doors and bar open at 6:30, music begins around 7:00. Advance tickets are available online at sherbino.org for $20, or $24 at the door. For more information, go to sherbino.org or call 970-318-0150.
