Over the past 20 years, Foxglove has established itself as a Mendocino County favorite. The band’s selection of heartfelt originals and carefully curated covers have featured tight harmonies and tasty string-band instrumentation.
Gwyneth Moreland, a Mendocino County native, was a teenager when the band was formed. She was immediately adored by Foxglove fans for her beautiful voice. Soon, however, Gwyneth would have fans that never heard of Foxglove as she developed her career as a singer-songwriter on the folk circuit from coast to coast. This has only made Foxglove richer as her songs have become part of the Foxglove lexicon. Gwyneth plays guitar and accordion. www.gwynethmoreland.com
Morgan Daniel, Gwyneth’s older brother, has been playing guitar and writing songs since “the garage band days” in the 80s. He shares lead vocal and songwriting duties with Gwyneth. He is also a luthier (he built Gwyneth’s guitar). www.morgandaniel.com
John Bush is an essential part of the music scene in Mendocino–if you’ve taken in live music on the coast over the past four decades, you’ve likely enjoyed his musicianship. Foxglove’s followers know about his prowess on the fretless bass and his soulful voice, but one might also have seen him playing drums, guitar, keyboards, or even the saxophone in genres from jazz and prog rock to country and blues.
When Booi Volk joined the band in late 2002, what was “Moreland, Daniel, and Bush” became Foxglove, and it’s been that way ever since. Booi first arrived with a mandolin. Then he showed up with a banjo. Then a guitar. Even a hand-pan. Whatever instrument he is playing conveys his sensitivity to the greater musical cause (and his sense of humor). From bluegrass to brazilian choro, Booi brings it all to the Foxglove sound.CHOOSE SEATS AND BUY
