Over The Moon at Edinburgh FC / EFC
Canadian roots/swing duo Over The Moon's Suzanne Levesque and Craig Bignell are award-winning multi-instrumentalists/vocalists who 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 Suzanne and Craig released their debut album, "Moondancer", the resonances were there for all to hear reflecting the pulse of lives lived in a territory that is both dirt-hard rugged and beautiful.
Over The Moon's music is a wild ride from 1940'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 the album's 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 said "We knew we were on to something special"
Since their meeting and teaming up (and getting married as well), they have been getting rave reviews and gaining new friends and fans wherever they perform. Their first CD "Moondancer", was released in 2017 and reflects the beautiful two-part harmony style that they are known for and the wide array of acoustic instruments that they play. Most of the songs are original and tell stories of life lived in Southern Alberta's ranching country. The title song "Moondancer" was given to them by their artist/ranching neighbour Ian Tyson (remember him? One half of "Ian and Sylvia" and the well-known songs, like the now-classic, Four Strong Winds and You Were On My Mind.)!
