Half Moon Run Coming to Mariposa

Posted on

Mariposa Folk Festival announced the addition of Half Moon Run to the artistic lineup today, bolstering an already impressive roster of performers for the iconic music festival taking place July 5-7, 2019, in Orillia, Ontario, on the shores of scenic Lake Couchiching.

The music of Half Moon Run is often described as dreamy alt-pop, bucolic alt-folk, and psychedelic indie rock. Armed with classical training and omnivorous influences, they build on cerebral, acrobatic arrangements and harmonies, lilting prettily in one moment then feral the next.

Mariposa’s Artistic Director, Liz Scott exclaimed that she is, “Super excited to add Montreal’s Half Moon Run to Friday night’s lineup. Their shows take audiences on a dreamy and layered alt-folk/rock journey. They are magnetic performers with a mesmerizing, world-class live show.”
