The Red Barn Community Music Series in cooperation with KCBX Public Radio and the Live Oak Music Festival presents Moonsville Collective in Concert. As young ramblers from the suburbs of recession in Los Angeles, they began their musical formation by taking refuge in Central California and sitting-in on jug band and old-time music circles where an infectious and pure spirit of ?music for music?s sake? lived. Injecting that same spirit into their own community became their quest. Moonsville started as a collective, a group for musicians to come and go while fine-tuning their chops. They cheerfully and often drunkenly sang their voices hoarse at homegrown hootenannies and local bars that had never heard covers of C.C. Rider and Goodnight Irene. COREY ADAMS - VOCALS/GUITAR/BANJOS, MATTHEW MCQUEEN ? MANDOLIN, "DOBRO" DAN RICHARDSON - RESONATOR/DOBRO/VOCALS, SETH RICHARDSON - DOUBLE BASS, RYAN WELCH - VOCALS/GUITAR/BANJOS.
