Life During Quarantine: Speaking With Shadow in the Moon< < Back to
Jessica Bouffioux and Kurt McGinnis are Shadow in the Moon, a Lancaster-based musical duo, that, just like everyone and everything else, have been impacted by COVID-19 and the efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Although measures to ensure public safety have made it impossible for traditional live performance (at least as of the writing of this feature,) to take place, the duo have been using their time sheltered in place to create, think, and plan for the future of Shadow in the Moon. Most recently, Bouffioux and McGinnis submitted a music video for their song “Hollow” to Soul Tech Art Collective‘s virtual “Pandemic and Resilience” show, which you can watch embedded above.
Currently, Shadow in the Moon is scheduled to perform at Donkey Coffee on Saturday, May 9, although that show may be cancelled due to restrictions on public gatherings. If the show is canceled, no need to fret! The duo will be live streaming their eclectic brand of theatrically inclined folk-pop, and fans can find out more at this link. The band has also been performing various covers on their YouTube channel, including Fleetwood Mac’s “Gold Dust Woman,” Traffic’s “Dear Mr. Fantasy,” and more.
I spoke to Jessica and Kurt about their submission to Soul Tech Art Collective’s “Pandemic and Resilience” show and how this unique period in history is impacting their creative process in the interview embedded above.
