Pat Moore’s voice has a warm and expressive quality, as perfectly suited to a rich ballad, as it is to an up-tempo power song. She moves easily from the storytelling of the singer/songwriter genre, to the lonesome sound of traditional country and bluegrass. Beyond her active solo career and as leader of many trio ensembles, Pat is also well known as a member of the bands Maple Hill Bluegrass and The Vinyl Frontier.

Joining Pat is Pat McLaughlin on acoustic guitar and mandolin. Pat has made quite a name for himself with his inspiring backup and lead playing. He is a much sought after player; can also be seen playing with Trevor Alguire, Ball and Chain, as well as in the travelling show “Grievous Angel, The Legend of Gram Parsons.” His vocal harmony brings a warm full sound to the songs.
Rounding out this trio is multi-instrumentalist John Steele, is one of the region’s most soft-spoken, but highly regarded, musicians. “He’s one of the finest musicians in the Ottawa Valley,” says Renfrew’s Mill Music owner Steve St. Michael.
BREAKING NEWS: Pat Moore’s trio with guitarist-mandolinist Pat McLaughlin and pianist John Steele will become a quartet with the addition of swinging acoustic bassist and cellist Ken Kanwisher. He played on Pat Moore’s first solo album and is a member of John Steele’s Western Swing Band.
Opening act is Shannon Eddy, a singer songwriter who glides effortlessly from folk to blues to jazz on piano and guitar with a strong voice and excellent musicianship.
