The Brother Brothers

And a short opening set by a local performer



Based out of Brooklyn NY, twin brothers Adam and David Moss are a musical duo unlike most others.

Rich harmonies and thoughtful songs accompanied by guitar, cello, violin and banjo, as only a group like the Brother Brothers can offer. Already established players and composers in a wide spectrum of genres throughout the NY musical circuit, they are finally teaming up to bring their individual experiences together.

"While they’re technically a new band, The Brother Brothers have been in this together for life, and their familial connection comes through in the music, harkening back to some of the greatest family harmonies ever made. They approach their poignant and often charming songs with an almost startling sense of ease, and the tight harmonies are enough to send shivers down anyone’s spine. Their ability to pull the listener into their quietly energetic musical journey is a joy to behold. I can’t wait to be out on the road with Adam & David and hear their heart wrenching songs and spot on harmonies night after night!"
— Sarah Jarosz

Brooklyn based fiddler and songster Adam Moss’ musical career can most easily be characterized by the variance of his influences. Adam loves and plays in the Klezmer, Bluegrass, Old-time and swing traditions which lends itself to a very unique and innovative style in performance setting. He is actively touring with Boston’s Session Americana, Brooklyn's The Defibulators, Ana Egge, and has formerly toured with Anais Mitchell’s "Hadestown," and Texas’ 3 Redneck Tenors.

Originally from Peoria, IL, David Moss began his musical journey playing cello and singing in various formats from a very young age. After receiving a degree in cello performance from the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign), he moved to Austin, TX in 2007 where he immediately formed with the trio The Blue Hit. There, David attended the Kerrville Folk Festival, and before long was playing guitar and writing songs. By summer 2011 he was a finalist in the prestigious New Folk competition and went on to become a winner. He is currently living in Brooklyn, NY and performing his songs in various formats with his twin brother Adam and continuing his cello career, playing and composing with The Blue Hit as well as groups such as the Satellite Ballet, Moishe Circus, The Broken Stares, Ana Egge, Roy Williams and The Human Hands and many others.
