Moore to play new music at Heron
Islander Ian Moore, a singer, songwriter and guitarist who’s been compared to Stevie Ray Vaughan and Roy Orbison, will take a break from his touring schedule to perform in his first Blue Heron concert, one night only, at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 5.
Originally from Austin, Texas, Moore traded dry riverbeds and sagebrush for the Douglas firs and rain of the Northwest. Living on Vashon has further inspired him, he says, and his 2007 release, “To Be Loved” (Justice Records), is further evidence that this is one musician who will always be at the leading edge of his musical game, according to organizers of the event.
“This concert is a big deal to me,” said Moore. “I’ll be playing a lot of new music, and I hope Islanders will come out and listen.”
Moore will be joined by Colin Fuchs, of Austin, on vibraphone, trumpet and guitar.
Both his 2004 release, “Luminaria,” and now “To Be Loved” have received critical acclaim.
Tickets are $14 for VAA members, seniors and students, and $16 general admission. They’re available at Blue Heron and Heron’s Nest. Seating is limited. Call 463-5131 to reserve.
