Moors and McCumber

James Moors and Kort McCumber will be performing at the Wright Opera House in Ouray at 7 p.m. Friday, July 9. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m.

Moors (Superior, Wisconsin) and McCumber (Gold Hill, Colorado) are Americana musicians who craft beautiful story songs that walk the line between rootsy folk and melodic pop.

The two songwriters met at the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons, in 2005. Sitting around swapping songs, they each heard something in the music of the other that just fit. The two have been performing and writing together ever since.

After touring for years as solo artists, Moors & McCumber discovered that their music together is more than the sum of the parts. Embracing a bigger sound than most duos, they switch instruments on almost every song (playing acoustic and electric guitar, piano, cello, mandolin, Irish bouzouki, tenor banjo, fiddle, harmonica, accordion and ukulele), creating catchy melodies that are big, bright and electrifying to watch live.

As Grammy award-winning producer Lloyd Maines said, “They bring it all to the stage and deliver in a big way.”
