Over the Moon in Concert
The Foothills Bluegrass Music Society is proud to present Over the Moon in Concert Saturday May 11th  2019

Over The Moon

Canadian roots/swing duo Over The Moon's   Suzanne Levesque and Craig Bignell are awarding multi-instrumentalists/vocalists that met, fell in love, got married and discovered their voices blend so well together that people often tear up upon hearing them sing.

Living on a ranch in the foothills of Alberta's Rocky Mountains, it's inevitable there will be a strong sense of place- and the rhythms of the land when you start to make music.   When the couple released their debut album, the resonances were there for all to hear. reflecting the pulse of life,  lived in a territory that is both dirt-hard rugged and beautiful.

Their music is a wild ride from 40's sounding western swing and Appalachian old-time, to cowboy blues.  Simple and sweet, all of their material has a common thread that speaks of the Canadian west and on their UK release, reviews were glowing. American Roots UK saying it was "Exceptional" and  Country Music People adding "There's so much to enjoy here." The editor of Maverick Magazine told readers "You will love this"  Elmore Magazine, New York "We knew we were on to something special"

(Some reviews to choose from)

BRILLIANT, ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT
Frank Hennessy, BBC Radio Wales

TOGETHER, THEIR VOICES HAVE A TIMELESS QUALITY THAT SUITS THIS EARTHY MUSIC PERFECTLY
Paul Jackson, FATEA Magazine U.K.

A TRULY LOVELY ALBUM
Suzanne Cadgene, ELMORE MAGAZINE, NEW YORK

THE VERY ESSENCE OF TRADITIONAL COUNTRY-FOLK AT IT'S FINEST. SOOTHING FOR THE SOUL AND A GLIMPSE INTO THE ETHEREAL
Editor, Maverick Magazine, UK

This husband-and-wife duo have created an album that's almost as charming as their Alberta's foothills home. It's no wonder you can virtually feel the love.
Mike Sadava-Penguin Eggs Magazine

THERE'S SO MUCH TO ENJOY HERE
Spencer Leigh, COUNTRY MUSIC PEOPLE Magazine, U.K.

MOONDANCER, THEIR DEBUTE ALBUM JUST OOZES WITH INTEGRITY AND CHARM. THE INTERPLAY IS SIMPLY GLORIOUS!
Marc Higgins, Northern Sky Magazine U.K.

THEIR VOICES BLEND AS IF THEY WERE BORN TO SING TOGETHER.
Mike Morrison, American Roots U.K.

As I've said, I've truly enjoyed listening to this album. At various points during my workdays, I've found myself swaying to the music- a great compliment to the artists.
The Great Dark Wonder

WHAT A FAB SOUND
Eve Blair, BBC Radio Ulster {Northern Ireland)

THIS IS A TERRIFIC ALBUM THAT SURELY DESERVES THE ATTENTION OF AN ESTABLISHED LABEL TO GET THIS OUT TO THE WIDE WORLD. IF OLD TIME MUSIC IS YOUR THING, THERE WILL BE FEW BETTER ALBUMS AROUND THIS YEAR
Micheal Farley, Americana UK Magazine

It bring back the simplicity and beauty of songwriting, of story telling through music, taking you somewhere else entirely, somewhere beautiful!
Heather Young, Canadian Beats Media

MOONDANCER IS A JOY FROM THE FIRST NOTE TO THE LAST NOTE.
Maurice Hope, Flying Shoes Reviews

IT'S A GREAT ALBUM, I WAS OVER THE MOON WHEN I PLAYED THIS ONE!
Marie Crichton, BBC Radio Herford and Worcester

 This is just one of the ways we get to play music for a living but it's quickly becoming one of our favourites.  As we have both spent most of our careers so far backing up other artists,  this is a way for us to get back to basics and really develop our sound using only what acoustic instruments we  play and our voices.

 It's great fun to work out two part harmonies that blend and suit the music and still add the right emotion to the stories they tell.  Also, if we want the sound of an instrument we don't play, we just get one and start studying until we are able to add it.  Haha, that adds to some funny moments on stage but I guess that's what playing real music is about!
