I cannot adequately express how amazing The Moon and You are, as musicians, as vendors, and as people! They absolutely MADE our wedding. First of all, they're both the most genuine, kind, sincere people you could ever hope to meet, the type of people you wish lived close enough to become friends with. They were extremely communicative during booking/planning and very accommodating of our requests (even to some made by my father!). They have the perfect sound for us, and are both so creative and talented. My wife and I keep their CD in our car and listen to it more often than we'll admit. We follow their travels and can't wait until their next trip to Atlanta!
Rooted in the rich music scene of Asheville, NC, seasoned players Ryan Furstenberg and Melissa Hyman have been working together as a duo since January of 2012. In that time we have given many hundreds of performances at weddings, events, festivals, retirement communities, theaters, clubs - almost any sort of venue you can imagine. Our wedding clientele in the Asheville area is always growing, mainly by word of mouth / referrals. We often book quite far in advance, but don't hesitate to contact us about gigs that are coming up soon - we may have a last-minute opening in our calendar.
The Moon and You “blends cello and guitar to craft folk music with a 1970's singer-songwriter feel in the vein of Joan Baez or Harry Nilsson. Together they make tender songs that feel like a warm homemade blanket,” says Brian Tucker of the Wilmington Star News Online. We travel throughout the Southeastern US, up and down the East coast, and to Western Europe; our touring territory is always growing, too. Ask us about your wedding even if it's a long way from Asheville, NC - often, we can work a far-off event into our tour schedule in order to make it possible.
The stately elegance of cello, the warmth of fingerstyle guitar,and the gorgeous sound of two voices in harmony can add so much beauty to your wedding ceremony. As we play frequently with dozens of talented musicians from all corners of Asheville's amazing music scene, we can easily add banjo, mando, bass, drums, horns - just about any instrumental combo you desire - to get the dance party going at your reception. We are as versatile as we are professional. Contact us for a bid today!
