The Roots North Music Festival has added Meredith Moon to the St Paul’s Centre main stage.
Moon has spent the last decade travelling her home of Canada, and the world, finding inspiration for her unique style of songs which are crafted in a true storyteller's fashion.
She has been described as a 'gem' among the old-time music scene for her unusual expression of the genre, combining influences of folk-punk with traditional Appalachian sound.
Besides playing traditional tunes often 'non-traditionally', Meredith presents a powerful voice and highly contemporary clawhammer banjo style. She is a multi-instrumentalist, incorporating finger-style guitar, piano and lap dulcimer, among other instruments, into her performances.
Along with an endorsement from Gold Tone Music Group and a recent recording deal with True North Records/Linus Entertainment, Moon has been a regular in the folk music and folk festival circuit for over a decade. In the last eight years, she has toured Mexico, Central America, the U.K. and Europe.
She released "Forest Far Away" in May of 2018, and will be releasing her second full-length album, “Constellations”, in early 2023.
Weekend passes are available for $65 for two full nights of main-stage performances, including Moon, Michael Kaeshammer, Kellie Loder, Tommy Youngsteen, and the Ronnie Douglas Band on April 21 and 22. To purchase tickets go to www.RootsNorthMusic.ca.
