The Moose Whisperers

The Moose Whisperers is a young old-time stringband consisting of three Americans and a fiddler from Norway. They met at festivals in the Appalachian mountains, played together and went on to win the old-time stringband contest at the Clifftop festival in 2016. They performed the winner's concert the next year and made an album for their Scandinavian tour in January 2018.
