The Moore Brothers Band
The Moore Brothers Band • The Mast Farm Inn is honored to be one of the official sponsors of The Moore Brothers Band of Hildebran, North Carolina. “When you first see the newest release from The Moore Brothers Band, Pick It Brother, a first glance will have your mind processing a picture of three young men, all less than “legal age”, with bluegrass instruments. Your initial impression may be of just three kids, but once you rip off the cellophane and pop it in the player, you’ll know this CD holds talent well beyond the years of the three young men on the cover.” ~ LocalGrass
The Moore Brothers Band had their 1st stage performance in 2007. From the beginning, you could hear the “Old Soul” feeling in their music. Since that 1st performance, they have evolved into crowd pleasing entertainers, became multi-instrumentalist and embraced brother harmony. You will see Isaac bending the strings on his guitar, singing from the soul and engaging the crowd. Jacob will be singing harmony and improvising on his fiddle, mandolin, banjo or guitar.
With the addition of Daniel Perry on the doghouse bass and vocals, their high energy drive and harmonies have reached another level. The synergy or unspoken language of music between Jacob, Isaac and Daniel is only totally experienced in a live show. You will hear many musical influences throughout their shows including blues, gospel, bluegrass, jazz & even swing.
Daniel, Jacob and Isaac are all participants of the Kids on Bluegrass Program by the International Bluegrass Music Association. In fact, they all met in Nashville at IBMA’s World of Bluegrass Meeting. They have played at the Red, White and Bluegrass Festival, Graves Mountain Music Festival, MACC, MerleFest, Dollywood, IBMA’S WOB, featured in a Pam Tillis video, CMA Awards after party and the Station Inn in Nashville to name a few, plus countless shows across their native North Carolina. The Moore Brothers Band performs about 70 shows a year throughout the Southeast. In the short time they’ve been together they’ve recorded two CDs. The latest CD project “Pick It Brother”, recorded on Music Row in Nashville, is now available for purchase at www.moorebrothersband.com or CD Baby. The CD has special guests Kristin Scott Benson on banjo and Dave Fowler on bass.

Jacob Moore • Jacob began pursuing his musical interest with classical violin training at the Suzuki School of the Arts, when he was seven years old. After two years, he decided to dive into bluegrass and began fiddle lessons from Roger Ledford. He is currently taking lessons from Alan Johnson (“Big Al”), formerly with Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver and is playing a fiddle built by our friend, Lebron Batey.
Shortly after starting the violin, he also chose to play the mandolin. Ben Cockman, of the Cockman Family Band, got Jacob started at the age of eight. At the age of ten, he began lessons with Wayne Benson of IIIrd Tyme Out. Jacob was the Junior Mandolin Champion in the youth division at Fiddler’s Grove at the age of 9 years old. At age 10, he won Most Promising Talent division of the Mooresville 67th Old Time Fiddler’s and Bluegrass Convention. At age 11, he won first place in the Burke County Youth Talent Showcase. He also enjoys playing the guitar, electric Fender Stratocaster guitar and bass. He sings tenor and lead in the band. Jacob enjoys recording and mixing his own music.
