Moonrakers announce their final gigs of the year


Dear Friends,

Exciting news!  Our music is to be used on the forthcoming second season of the BBC television series Beyond Paradise. We’re dead chuffed with that, and with the four-star review we had in RnR Magazine this quarter. If for any reason (and we can’t imagine why) you haven’t yet got a copy of our new album Green To Gold, just send us an email at   Bear in mind that even if you haven’t got a CD player, we can send you the high quality sound files once you’ve bought the album.

And so we move to the final few folky flings of the year. The lovely people at Lea, Wiltshire, have invited us back, and thereafter we’ll be doing our annual weekend workshop in the old village of Dunster, Somerset.

Next year? The calendar is filling up – take a look at the website If you’d like us to come to play for you, even in your own home (yes, that’s a thing these days!), let us know. Meanwhile, we’d love you to ‘virtually’ join us on Facebook where you’ll find videos, news, etc  – Facebook

Best wishes, and huge thanks for your support!
Jon, Becki, Jacqui and Sarah
