Blue Moon Soup, the acoustic folk quartet from Yellow Springs, Ohio, entrances audiences with an eclectic mix of jam band staples, folk and bluegrass traditional standards, and originals tunes that fuse folk and psychedelia to establish a unique identity in an increasingly homogenized musical landscape. As evidenced by the presence of a fiddle, mandolin, guitar, and upright bass, Blue Moon Soup’s bluegrass and Celtic folk roots run deep. On stage, trailside or fireside, Blue Moon Soup’s music brings a sincerity and spirit to the stage that sweeps wallflowers onto the dance floor, and an enthusiasm that engages the audience into the wee hours. After a Blue Moon Soup show, we hope your feet are tired and your ears yearn for more.
From dive bars to concert halls, Blue Moon Soup quickly attracted a fervent core group of fans throughout the broader Dayton area, and went on to augment its burgeoning following by appearing at a variety of regional musical festivals in Ohio and toured throughout the region, making inroads into Colorado, Kansas, Michigan, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Indiana.
In September 2013, Blue Moon Soup release their self titled sophomore album to broad critical acclaim. A follow up to Lonely Mountain, Blue Moon Soup’s first LP released in 2011, 2013's Blue Moon Soup saw the band named Dayton Music Connection's Band of the Year, among other accolades. Although the band’s current primary focus is to broaden its reach in Ohio metro areas, they are crafting a third LP for a fourth quarter 2014 release, and continuing to reach out to new fans; young and old, near and far.
