NELSONVILLE, Ohio (WOUB) – Mississippi Delta blues inspired bluegrass-folk band FERD performed a lively set pulled largely from their self-released debut album, Feelin’ Like The Wind, at the 2023 Nelsonville Music Festival.

Founded by Ferd Moyse IV (vocals, fiddle), the band also includes Matt Morelock (vocals, banjo) and Chris Stevens (double bass). The group has been playing together for well over 10 years, but only recently decided to hit the road with their act. FERD has since quickly gained popularity, leading to headlining spots at the Rotterdam Bluegrass Festival, Old Tone Festival, and Blackpot Festival.

FERD delivered a tight-knit acoustic set engaging a grooving crowd with a mixture of released and un-released tunes.
