Say Hello to "Goodnight Blue Moon"

Aug 24, 2012

Today, we’re in our studio 3 for some live music with the New Haven indie-folk band “Goodnight Blue Moon.”

They’ve been playing as a band in the area since 2008...but many of them have been playing songs together for much, much longer.

Erik Elligers is the lead singer and plays guitar. His wife Nancy plays cello and his brother Sean plays trumpet. Along with Mathew Crowley and Henry Lugo, they’ll be playing songs from the band’s new record, “How Long.”

They’re part of an indie-folk movement that has essentially taken over traditional folk festivals like Newport...and has launched bands like the Avett Brothers to stardom.

We’ll hear some songs played live - and talk about making music with Goodnight Blue Moon.
