On Friday, November 27th at 7:30 p.m. (the day after Thanksgiving) the Blue Moon Coffeehouse features a special night of music with Cat and the Moon. If you’ve heard the well known bluegrass band Twisted Pine, you’ve heard some of Cat and the Moon. The banjo player, Ricky Mier, and the fiddle player, the Kathleen Parks, are major driving forces in Cat and the Moon. Cat and the Moon describes themselves as a dynamic acoustic roots band with strong Celtic/bluegrass influences. They met at Boston’s Berklee College of Music where two members are currently continuing their studies. They have quickly become a much sought-after group in Boston’s world class Irish music scene, recently taking part in both the 2014 Boston Celtic Music Fest and The Boston Irish Festival and after parties for the St. Pats Celtic Sojourn Concert and The Boston Irish Film Festival. The band’s members have won coveted awards such as Berklee’s North American Tour Scholarship (a four year full scholarship) and the NH Bass Solo Competition. Ricky Mier was the winner of the 2014 Fresh Grass Banjo Competition. Between sets by the band, there will be an open mike. Tickets are $10 at the door; children 12 and under are free. The address is Channing Church, 45 Webster St. Rockland, MA. For more information, visit the website (https://sites.google.com/site/thebluemooncoffeehouse/) or the Facebook page.
