Canoe Jam article on Five Guys Named Moe (please note this this is not any of the several American bands with this name and variations on this name)
Bound By The Beauty-era Jane Siberry, Meg Lunney's solo work, other Canadian folkpop groups
This is not the musical—this is an early 1990s band from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.
Recommended first album:
Five Guys Named Moe is their sole release
1990—RCA (Canada)—PD 74606
Wide on release in Canada; now hard to find
Highly recommended for fans of folkie/pop or for Meg Lunney fans
Jonathan Evans—vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar
Dónal Lunny—bouzouki, bodhran, additional acoustic guitar, additional vocals
This is a collection of lively pop songs with harmonic vocals, the best of which (to my tastes at least) feature the odd vocals of Meg Lunney. The songs are not all bouncy, of course, there are some lovely ballads like "Good News" and "Beneath The Willow", which has an almost traditional feel, but mostly this has a delightful energetic and fun upbeat feel.
