Tiger Moon at The Dream Cafe
Just imagine Earl Scruggs was dreaming that Dolly Parton and Led Zeppelin had a baby band. Then they let Steve Earle and the Dukes co-parent with Jim Beam. Tiger Moon is a West Canadian Folk duo – elements of Bluegrass and Country music wrap their devout Folk sound into a completely unique sound and structure. Dan Tait and Kasey Graff boast harmonious sounds, heartfelt melodies, and foot-stomping rhythms – they are a pair to be reckoned with. They perform with a guitar, mandolin, foot percussion, two sets of boots and two big, rich voices. Drawing their sound from traditional folk, Canadiana, soul and rock, they are a minimalist barn-burning band with syrup-soaked harmonies. Tiger Moon came to be in 2012 when Kasey and Dan, each already forging their own music careers, found one another in downtown Kelowna. They discovered a beautiful chemistry together and began performing as a duo at jam nights and coffeehouses. Shortly thereafter, the couple became serious about their music and began wowing crowds with their rich, harmony-driven sound.
In January 2017 Tiger Moon gathered a crew of creatives and brought them to Wells, BC to record their first length album. With the help of Island Mountain Arts and Barkerville National Historic Site, the team spent a week recording in Wells and Barkerville, BC. They captured live organic audio in churches over 150 years old, and recorded the breadth of what would be come their debut full-length album; Cariboo & Whiskey.
