A lovely memory from last year 

A lovely memory from Folk on the Farm last summer. Here we are with our cover of Why Worry (Mark Knopfler), followed by Serious Fun (Jimmy Rae) where we were joined by some of the Tyddeners group on percussion (if you've been, you'll know who they are. If you haven't, come this year and find out!). We're not on the bill this year but we wouldn't miss it for the world. 

 

Exciting developments ahead for 2018! 

Hello Moonshine fans! Sorry we've been a bit quiet recently but we're busy working on a few things around our album One Day at the moment.

There's lots of activity happening at Moonshine HQ and we've been busy recording some videos for 2018...so watch this space!

In the meantime, here's a snippet of some interviews with fans who said very lovely things about us :) 

Folk on the Farm 

Last weekend we played at Folk on the Farm music festival, held in the delightful setting of Tyddyn Mon Farm, near the northeastern coast of Anglesey. On the Sunday afternoon we let loose the glorious sunshine (specially ordered by us Moonshine folk!). This song is the first one of our set - by the end the courtyard was rocking! What a great festival. 

"Made in Liverpool" TV shoot 

This Monday we went to film two interviews and four of Jimmy's original songs, for Made in Liverpool TV. The filming was for two shows - the Lowdown, and Sound City. The Lowdown show has already been broadcast, and you can watch it on catch-up here (Episode 129, time 15:50).

Monday was special for another reason - it was Jimmy's birthday! So after the filming, we went down to the marina for a wee dram of celebratory bibation!
