Meredith Moon

Meredith Moon started writing songs at the age of eight, and became a self-taught guitar player at the age of fourteen. A few years later she found her sound as a busker on sidewalks from Halifax to Vancouver. She has spent the last twelve years travelling her home of Canada, and the world, by means of road and rail, finding inspiration for her unique style of songs which are crafted in a true storyteller’s fashion. She has been described as a ‘gem’ among the Old-Time music scene for her unusual expression of the genre, combining influences of folk-punk with traditional Appalachian sound.

Besides playing traditional tunes often ‘non-traditionally’, Meredith presents a powerful voice and highly contemporary clawhammer banjo style which has gained acclaim within the international old-time music community. She is a multi-instrumentalist, incorporating finger-style/travis picking guitar, piano and lap dulcimer, among other instruments, into her performances.


She released “Constellations” on True North Records/Linus Entertainment to rave reviews and garnered international acclaim and has since been nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award for Traditional Album of the Year, and was on the Folk Alliance International top 10 Album Chart two months running in April and May 2023.
