WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The band Uncle Moon will host an evening of Scottish music celebrating the songs of Robert Burns with an eclectic group of musical guests ranging from folk musicians to kazoo players to a punk bass soloist. There will be traditional favorites as well as the more allusive Burns songs that are not heard as often including "The Bonniest Lass," "Nine Inch Will Please A Lady," and "Wha?ll Mowe Me Now?" The contemporary interpretations of Burns songs created by these musicians have gained a large following in New York City and not just by those of Scottish descent. Uncle Moon is Trey Kay, Carl Riehl, Fritz Van Orden, Robin Casey and Doug Largent. They perform everything from Django Reinhardt to Cole Porter with a swinging sound mix of jazz and Appalachian folk and have played at venues all over Manhattan and Brooklyn including CBGB?s and The Mercury Lounge. Members of Uncle Moon have also performed with The Ordenaires and The Cheese Beads.
