Moon Tunes | Mingo Fishtrap, California Honeydrops & More

Last month we reported on a new video series called Moon Tunes launched by organizers of this fall's Phases Of The Moon Music & Art Festival. A number of performers set to play the fest - which will take place September 11 - 14 at Kennekuk County Park in Danville, IL - have recorded versions of moon-related songs for the series.

The second installment (view the first installment featuring Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds' "Dancing In The Moonlight" here) finds the dynamic, old-school soul-rock outfit Mingo Fishtrap serving up an inventive spin on "Bad Moon Rising." We're big fans of the version of the Creedence Clearwater Revival hit the Austin-based eight-piece band put together:

For the third installment of Moon Tunes, singer-songwriter Donavon Frankenreiter offers an acoustic take on his own "Call Me Papa," which starts with the line "The moon comes up and the moon goes down":

Ernie Hendrickson and his band star in the fourth installment of Moon Tunes. The trio deliver a beautiful version of the Grateful Dead's "Standing On The Moon":

The most recently-shared Moon Tunes video finds The California Honeydrops laying down a stirring and the swinging rendition of Bill Monroe's "Blue Moon Of Kentucky":

The inaugural Phases Of The Moon Festival will host performances from the likes of Widespread Panic, String Cheese Incident, Bob Weir & RatDog, Railroad Earth, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Gov't Mule and Galactic this fall as well as the bands featured above and many others. Jeff Austin is the latest addition to the jam-packed lineup. GA Festival Tickets and other various packages are on sale now via the Phases Of The Moon website.
