Meet Moriarty band from Paris in Taipei County

Moriarty, a band composed of 4 brothers who play acoustic instruments and a diva, is making a Taipei stopover during their world tour.

Their music has been described as “inspired by American and Irish folk, but also blues from the south of United States and even by country music.” Their sound blends “a voice drunk on honey, a double bass, suitcase drums, acoustic and electric guitars and a harmonica.”

The young musicians got together in Paris to create their act at the turn of the century. Since then, they have been making music “for the joy of spontaneous story-telling, of spilling out lines that ease into the rehearsal room and then form into characters, adventures and nostalgia.”

Moriarty will perform at the Multi-function Meeting Hall on the third floor of the Administration Building of Taipei County in Banciao at 7:30 p.m. on June 5. Three lucky members of the audience will be picked through a raffle draw to enjoy a late night snack with the members of the band after the show. In addition, three “Moriartyland” DVDs will be given away.

Tickets to the concert cost from NT$400 to NT$1,200. Find out through or call Sunrise Music at tel. (02)2511-8595.
