  • James Moors and Kort McCumber met in 2005 at the Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Song School. After playing just one song together, the two artists decided to start performing as a duo.

    Their musical chemistry was clear to others around them. When they started performing, people would come up after the show and say, "I want the CD of what I just heard."€

    Early on, Moors & McCumber were playing in bars and other noisy places where people paid little attention to the music. They felt that wasn'€™t what they wanted, so they decided to quit playing at bars and focus on venues where it'€™s all about the music. This helped them develop as artists and performers.

    Both performers sing lead and harmony and play a variety of instruments, including guitar, ukulele, mandolin, bouzouki, harmonica and many more.

    Moors and McCumber each have their own strengths, as well. Moors is a talented lyricist, melody writer and lead singer. McCumber is skilled at singing harmony and adding all the bells and whistles to the songs through arrangement and instrumentation.

    As Grammy award-winning producer Lloyd Maines said, "€œThese guys should be playing every major festival in the country. They bring it all to the stage and deliver in a big way."€
