“Bart Moore embarks on a storied folk journey through history and beyond. He seamlessly transports listeners….to the land at the intersection of reality and fantasy…”_____Lori Stratton, The Stratton Setlist
Once a veteran of the San Francisco alt rock scene, Moore, a Michigan native, relocated to the Lansing area “to escape the Big City club scene and postpone ultimate deafness.” Eschewing his Les Paul for an acoustic guitar, he settled on a farm in nearby Grand Ledge and made himself a presence in the local clubs.
“Bart Moore is an artist with true range, and he demonstrates that elegantly…” _____ Heather Savage, TOP BUZZ MAGAZINE
Moore’s influences pull from the Beatles, Jethro Tull, Tom Waits and Basement Tapes-era Dylan to more traditional American, Irish and Scottish folk music. Lyrically, he ranges from intricate ballads to more stream-of-consciousness wordscapes. In 2017 Moore released his acclaimed first CD, Curse of Los Lunas, at Lansing’s venerable Robin Theater. His second, Graveyards Wind & War, was released in May of 2022 and was the most added album on the NACC charts (Folk/World genre) for the week thereafter.
No one writes like Moore: setting scenes using peculiar lyrical details, tying slipknots in the human timeline so history intertwines with the present, and bringing death to life. All that comes into play on Graveyards, Wind, & War…..” ____Kevin Curtin, Music Writer, Austin Chronicle
Bart Moore performs at mid-Michigan venues such as The Turner-Dodge House, the Blue Owl Café, The Robin Theater (where he did his first CD release), Moriarty’s, Kelly’s Downtown Pub, UrbanBeat, the EagleMonk Pub and open-air events and festivals around Michigan.
