JUNE 14: GOODNIGHT BLUE MOON
Goodnight Blue Moon will take the stage on June 14. Blending rich vocal harmonies with lush orchestrations, Goodnight Blue Moon has created a sound that is steeped in tradition, yet entirely current. GNBM is known for their energetic, honest, and dynamic live performances, offering a refreshing take on Americana roots music.
Awarded Best Roots Act in the 2016 New England Music Awards, Goodnight Blue Moon has cemented their place as one of New England's premier groups. They have shared the stage with indie-folk heavyweights Hurray for the Riff Raff, Spirit Family Reunion, and Joe Fletcher and the Wrong Reasons among others, in addition to creating a diverse and devoted following of their own. Goodnight Blue Moon has been regularly featured on WNPR's Where We Live and NEXT with John Dankosky. Their festival credits include LAUNCH Music Festival, MUSIKFEST, Podunk Bluegrass Festival, and Block Island Music Festival.
Goodnight Blue Moon released their third studio album, Dawning Dream, in April 2018.
The Summer Concerts on the Square are made possible with the generous support of The Oaks on the Square, UConn Summer & Winter Programs, Amazon@Storrs, Barnes & Noble UConn, Mooyah, National Institute of Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine (NICABM), and Storrs Center Retail.
