About Blue Moon Soup
Blue Moon Soup, the acoustic folk quartet from Yellow Springs, Ohio, entrances audiences with an eclectic mix of jam band staples, folk and bluegrass traditional standards, and original tunes that fuse folk and psychedelia to establish a unique identity in an increasingly homogenized musical landscape.
