Ian Moore

“Moore has created a brand of challenging yet highly melodic new-millennium pop-rock that establishes him as an audacious songwriter and player. He has struck that rare balance between astute complexity and utter pop appeal.” —All Music Guide

Back in Santa Fe for the first time in two years, don’t miss this rare chance to see Ian Moore in an intimate acoustic setting (the Maria Benitez Theater at The Lodge). A prolific singer-songwriter from Seattle who was spawned from the 90’s roots rock scene of Austin and gained popularity as a guitar prodigy, Moore’s stellar fretwork, insightful lyricism, and soulful vocals have garnered seven Austin Music Awards including “Musician of the Year” and “Best Electric Guitarist.” He has opened tours for the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and ZZ Top, and has backed artists as diverse as Roky Erickson and Jason Mraz.

With four Top-20 Billboard hits and nine albums to his credit, he continues to mesmerize critics and audiences alike with his riveting live performances. Opening the night is Santa Fe’s own David Berkeley. The New York Times lauds his “lustrous, melancholy voice with shades of Tim Buckley and Nick Drake. As his melodies ascend to become benedictions and consolations, the music shimmers and peals.”
