Moon Mullen – Appalachian Folk Music

Michael “Moon” Mullen

Moon Mullen has been bringing his high-energy “rootsy” brand of Appalachian acoustic music to Artsbridge school audiences since its beginning in 1986.

Area youngsters enjoy the variety of folk instruments he demonstrates, his master storytelling, funny original songs,… and on occasion, a bit of square-dancing. This is a perfect blend of hometown culture and plain, old-fashioned fun!
