Featuring Eight Point Star and Richmond's Lobo Marino, with opener Peat Bogs
Moss Pit returns as regional legends take over the Cube! Prepare to open your mind and explore ambient electronic sounds inspired by nature, Appalachian fiddle traditions with stories all their own, and experimental folk songs born from continuous travels and spiritual journeys.
Peat Bogs is the solo improvisation ambient electronic sound project of Miles Washington (Zone Lord, The Hornet, Church, and Mass Absence).
The moniker "Peat Bogs" is partially inspired by West Virginia boreal peat bogs, the Cranberry Glades, where Washington’s grandparents would often take him in the summers of his youth. The soundscapes created by Peat Bogs are inspired by sounds nature in both the literal and impressionistic sense.
Eight Point Star
Eight Point Star is the duo of guitarist Matt Peyton and fiddler Mike Gangloff, sometimes augmented with other musicians and instruments. Eight Point Star’s sound draws on deep Appalachian fiddle traditions and hill country blues, as well as on improvisation and drone music—but mostly on their own imaginations and long histories with sound.
Based in Montgomery County, Eight Point Star has toured regionally and in Europe. The duo is recording its first album.
Folk duo Lobo Marino has been touring nationally and internationally for many years. Lobo Marino’s music carries the message of humanity's need for reconnection with itself and the earth. Mystically political and whole-heartedly grassroots, this DIY band plays on large festival stages as well as backyard fire pits of intentional communities across the country.
In their hometown of Richmond, Virginia, the musicians of Lobo Marino founded a community space called Earth Folk Collective, which hosts a residency program as well as donation-based workshops on all types of wellness and sustainability topics. They also are the founders of Fonticello Food Forest, a public orchard intended for community gleaning.
Performing with Lobo Marino is local dancer and performance artist Katie Wells.
