Moors & McCumber Concert

  • Lake City Area Arts 225 East Chestnut Street Lake City, MN (map)

Moors & McCumber create that rare chemistry that happens when two gifted singer-songwriters and multi-instrumentalists perfectly complement each other’s strengths. Think of the vocal blend of Simon & Garfunkel, the complex harmonies of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and the instrumental chops of a chamber orchestra! All this amid exhilarating original songs that bring both smiles and tears - and always end with a burst of heartfelt applause.

James Moors and Kort McCumber grew up in different places and listening to different kinds of music – classical, rock, bluegrass, you name it. But when they met ten years ago they knew they’d found something golden. Since then, they’ve been cultivating their wide-ranging musical influences in songs that delve into love and life through haunting lyrics, soaring harmonies, and astonishing instrumental proficiency. As Grammy award-winning producer Lloyd Maines puts it, "These guys bring it all to the stage and deliver it in a big way."

On stage with James and Kort you'll find a warehouse of stringed instruments: guitar, Irish bouzouki, mandolin, fiddle, tenor banjo, ukulele and best of all, cello - not to mention harmonica and accordion. You'll hear a roundup of Americana styles all the way from country, roots-rock, folk and bluegrass to R&B and the blues. More and more influenced by their frequent trips to Ireland, their songs draw from the Celtic tradition as well.

Come to this Moors & McCumber concert for an unforgettable musical experience that will dazzle your eyes and ears - and touch your heart.
