Moonshine Society, blues/NOLA roots

Come celebrate American roots music—Americana and folk, country, blues, jazz, and even rockabilly—with the return of our popular summer concert series to the Garden – now in an online format!

Moonshine Society is the offspring of three promising young music scholars who came together at Boston’s renowned Berklee College of Music. Of like minds and musical passions, they united in 2009 to create their own brand of soulful blues, roots rock and old-school R&B—if a fundamental definition is actually required. The trio sealed their pact one moonlit night along the Anacostia in Washington, D.C., where then and there, their name became written in the stars. Leading the troupe is impassioned, soulful singer and songwriter Black Betty, who has shared the stage with such musical greats as Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, and Jack Pearson of Allman Brothers fame, Susan Tedeschi of the Tedeschi Trucks band, and Jimmy Vivino from “Late Night with Conan O’Brien.” Part vamp and part glamour girl, she is all-commanding in her on-stage deliveries and becomes pure sorceress, spellbinding audiences with her searing hot vocals. To quote from her sizzlingly seductive rendition of “Fever”— what a lovely way to burn.
