Ray Cardwell and Tennessee Moon

Ray Cardwell & Tennessee Moon performing at Sutton Ole Time Music Hour!

Earlier this year Ray Cardwell’s returned to the music business after a number of years away, and is touring with his band, Tennessee Moon.

The group features Kyle Wood on mandolin, Richard Starkey on guitar, Kelsey Crews on banjo, and Michael Testagrossa on reso-guitar. Ray will play bass and handle the lead singing.

In addition to possessing an extremely powerful, John Cowan-like vocal prowess, Ray is also a talented songwriter. Cardwell has been working in the studio of late with former New Grass Revival guitarist Pat Flynn producing.

If the last name sounds familiar, Ray is brother to long time IBMA staff member and Executive Director, Nancy Cardwell, who is working with him on marketing and publicity. The two of them performed together in their family’s bluegrass band as teens, along with their sister, Susan, and their parents, Marvin and Wanda.
