Chances are, if you haven’t heard of Moon Mullican, you’ve either heard his music or felt his influence. Revered for perfecting a wildly eclectic yet seamlessly organic blend of genres, Aubrey “Moon” Mullican (1909 – 1967) was an agile piano player and a fervent singer who described the rambunctious side of his hybrid repertoire as “East Texas sock” that could “make goddamn beer bottles jump on the tables!”

This brand new tribute to Moon comes straight from the Texas hill country, presented by Valcour Records’ recording artist and former Asleep at the Wheel frontman Johnny Nicholas with an all-star cast paying homage to this rather unsung hero of American Roots music.
