"The Mountain & The Moon" in concert
If Fiddlers Crossing had a middle name it might be “Variety.” Then again, it might also be “Innovative” or “Unusual.” Those names certainly apply to the October 20 concert to be presented at the popular music venue in downtown Tehachapi. “The Mountain & the Moon” is a young duo of Casey Holmberg and Noah Laniakea playing banjo and stand-up bass—not a guitar, fiddle or mandolin in sight!
Whether a fan of the banjo, the bass, bluegrass, old-time, folk or innovative acoustic music genres, The Mountain & the Moon concert should send you over the moon! For more information and music samples, see www.themountainthemoon.net and www.fiddlerscrossing.com.
Fiddlers Crossing is dedicated to offering the best in acoustic music to its audience, from seasoned to talented as yet unknowns in their regular concert series and First Friday Showcases. Fiddlers Crossing is at 206 East F Street at Robinson Street, in Downtown Tehachapi. Tickets may be purchased next door at Mountain Music, Tehachapi Treasure Trove, Tehachapi Furniture in Old Town, Lucky’s Barbershop, online at Fiddlerscrossing.com or with a credit card by calling 661-823-9994.
