A Church Concert Salida
Clark Roberts Presents a great night of music with Moors & McCumber at A Church in Salida, CO
"I know from personal experience the magic of finding that perfect musical partner. It is a very very rare bird indeed. For most it never happens, and if it does it creates musical magic...music that goes beyond the personal gifts of the individuals...it creates a third person, one who transcends and expands. James and Kort complete each other...they fill in each other's blanks and that makes for really really great music. Sophisticated yet simple, deceptively crafted, beautifully played, and written with inspiration." -Gary Louris, The Jayhawks
James Moors (Superior,WI) and Kort McCumber (Gold Hill,CO) are an Americana duo that crafts beautiful story songs that walk the line between rootsy folk and melodic pop. The two songwriters met at the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons,CO in 2005. Sitting around a campfire swapping songs, they each heard something in the music of the other that just fit. The two have been performing and writing together ever since. Having collectively sold more than 30,000 copies of independent releases from the stage, the duo has now released seven of their own full-length albums.
Although successful solo songwriters, Moors & McCumber discovered that their music together is more than the sum of the parts. Embracing a bigger sound than most duos, they switch up instruments on almost every song (playing acoustic guitar, mandolin, piano, ukulele, Irish bouzouki, tenor banjo, fiddle, harmonica, cello and accordion), creating catchy melodies that are big, bright and electrifying to watch live.
As Grammy award-winning producer Lloyd Maines says, These guys should be playing every major festival in the country. They bring it all to the stage and deliver in a big way.
