Blue Moon Rising

East Tennessee’s Blue Moon Rising perform original, classically crafted bluegrass songs that maintain a stylistic unity with the pioneering sounds of older artists while bringing innovation and a keen observance to the form. The group features Keith Garrett on mandolin, guitar, and vocals; songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist Chris West; Justin Jenkins on banjo and vocals; and bassist John Anderson.

The group garnered international recognition with the release of their album “On the Rise,” debuting at #14 on the Billboard's Bluegrass Chart in 2005 and still charting into 2007. The group enjoys touring the country and plans to bring its brand of high-energy bluegrass to audiences throughout the fall and winter of 2007 and 2008.

This artist appears in Jubilee #707: The Farewell Drifters/Blue Moon Rising.
