Moon] fill their music with the pulse and beauty of their Valley
surroundings, set to a rhythm as soothing as the flow of the
Fundy tide.... supple harmonies and imaginative arrangements."
Cooke, Chronicle Herald
The all-female quartet Cuckoo
Moon starts with strong vocal harmonies, mixes in guitar, accordion,
recorder and percussion, and serves it all up with an engaging,
inviting performance. The group's rootsy folk music celebrates
life through thoughtful and original songwriting and arrangements.
This summer while filming
a documentary on folk music at the Lunenburg Folk Festival I
chanced upon the extraordinarily talented Cuckoo Moon. After
days of filming performances a very burned out film crew stopped
dead in their tracks when they heard an incredible harmony emanating
from the gazebo in the centre of town. Cuckoo Moon has the kind
of raw energy that can turns heads. I can't wait to hear more.
A full Cuckoo Moon is a
rare event. It sometimes seems as though hearing all four members
of the group, Kate Adams, Cathy Arsenault, Carrie Harlow and
Heather Holm, performing together is as rare an event as a sighting
of the proverbial blue moon. It all came together recently at
the Night Kitchen performance in April. It is not often that
we hear the individual voices and guitars of Kate and Cathy
joined by Heather's accordion and recorder or Carrie's vocal
harmonies all in one place and one time. They live busy lives.
Lucky for us this celestial group has such individual talent
that they are able to adapt to their various lunar phases. A
three quarter, half, or even a quarter Cuckoo Moon offers a
special evening's entertainment. Cuckoo Moon, in whatever phase,
illuminates the landscape of the mind and the heart. The life
stories of these four interesting individual women find their
way into their songs in a way that allows the audience to identify
with their experiences and share the intimacy of their lives.
The two, three and four part harmonies join the individual soloist
in a musical conspiricacy that is infectious and very personal.
This is woman power as mysterious as the ocean currents and
with the tidal pull to create very big musical waves!
