” These guys should be playing every major Festival in the country. They bring it all to the stage and deliver it in a big way ” – Lloyd Maines. Grammy award winning Producer and Multi-instumentalist.
“Moors and McCumber take the vocal duet thing back to the days of Simon and Garfunkel or Crosby and Nash. Their recordings are great…” James Killen, Houston Music Review
“Multi-instrumentalist, Americana folk bluegrass newgrass groups are making waves in popular music these days (think Mumford and Sons, The Avett Brothers, Shovels and Rope, The Civil Wars, etc.) and Moors & McCumber are leaders in the revolution, not followers.” – Bailey Jones Sundilla Concert series
incredibly talented multi-instrumentalists, dedicated performers, prolific songwriters, and gifted and expressive vocalists. James Moors (vocals, guitars, ukulele, mandolin and Irish bouzouki) based in Superior, WI and Kort McCumber (vocals, keys, cello, guitars, Irish tenor banjo, Irish bouzouki, fiddle, mandolin, accordion, harmonica, upright and electric bass) based in Gold Hill, CO embrace a bigger sound than most duos, switching up instruments on almost every song, they create catchy melodies that are big, bright and electrifying to watch live! On the heels of a searing performance on the Kerrivlle Festival mainstage, they are now tourning the US with their new release, Pandemonium, produced by Gary Louris of the seminal band The Jayhawks. More than a decade into their musical pilgrimage, they continue to define, and redefine, their sound, their love for music and their commitment to bringing great music to listeners throughout the United States and Ireland. The recordings speak for themselves. Follow the musical pilgrimage through the years and listen to the evolution and revolution of their sound. Where does it go from here? Time will tell. But one thing is certain – the attention to detail and commitment to quality that forms the foundation of each and every seemingly new moment will remain.
