Mountain Street Stage Summer Music Series: Paper Moon Shiners

Item request cannot be made. ×
Please join us for the final concert in FPL's 2019 Mountain Street Stage Summer Music Series featuring Paper Moon Shiners, a Texas duo who specialize in vintage songs and originals inspired by American music from the early twentieth century.
The duo’s songs range in subject from the Greek lessons of King Midas to the graveness of realizing one’s mortality in “Everybody’s Leaving.” In every song, the instrumentation compliments the lyrics flawlessly. Sparse, jaunty percussion using trashcans, a megaphone, and a suitcase, brings vaudevillian humor to the mix. Even P.T. Barnum would have fallen for “Cap Gun Dory.” “Black Widow Spider” groans like a steam engine with a southern drawl. Paper Moon Shiners’ vintage sound and vaguely unsettling characters have the simultaneous simplicity and complexity of an Edward Gorey pen and ink drawing.
This concert is free, open to the public and made possible by the generosity of Gerald and Jolene Klingaman. Kids and families welcome. Be sure to wear your dancing shoes! If you are unable to attend this event in person, it will be available for viewing and replay via our FPL Livestream page at https://livestream.com/faylib.
