Nathan Moore "Travelin' On" This Fall

Nathan Moore is back on the road in September for the third leg of his "Travelin' On" 2009 tour supporting his latest release, Folk Singer. Upcoming dates include both headline performances and opening slots with the likes of Assembly Of Dust, Shemekia Copeland and Marco Benevento Trio.

 

folk-singer"Since the economy has turned and with the state of the world, people are looking closer to home for things to sustain us. In that sense, the folk singer thrives," says Moore. "I seem to catch people off guard when I am performing, in how they are reacting to me. I think people are poised. Our culture is so accustomed to not having direct connection, people are just jaded enough to be pleasantly surprised by a little folk singer. They come up to me after the show and say 'I wasn't expecting to feel any of that stuff, thank you!'"

 

Nathan Moore has logged many miles since May, toting his bag of tricks from coast-to-coast and giving thousands a peek inside. The Staunton, VA-based singer-songwriter, who's known to also perform magic tricks onstage, and who also fronts the the indie roots band Surprise Me Mr. Davis, performs solo acoustic in the pure folk tradition with just voice, guitar and harmonica at his own shows. The eight tracks on Folk Singer were recorded in the same manner.

 

"Every song I've ever written started with just me and my guitar. It's the point of origin and, in that sense, the purest form of my songs," says Moore. "My reality is, these days, I'm mostly touring alone and it's great to have an album that represents this side of me."
