Daughters of the Moon

Blue Moon Prairie is the convergence of 3 vocal stylists/songwriters: Robyn Adams, Laura Melanie Stein, and Caroline Jenney - all currently living in northern New Mexico. While their backgrounds are different (rock, country, folk, bluegrass), they all meet on the same musical playing field - and the result is wondrous! Truly, the whole is more than the sum of the parts.

Blue Moon Prairie began when a humble Craigslist ad seeking two other female vocalists who could harmonize was placed. Within 6 hours of placing the ad, the members of Blue Moon Prairie found each other. Two days later the first rehearsal was called; 6 months later they were recording their first CD.

Robyn Adams: Vocals, Bass, Mandolin
Robyn grew up in Taos, New Mexico. She moved away only to find herself right back in Taos after 30 years. Robyn's love of music as given to her from her mother, a concert-trained pianist. She learned to play the bagpipes at age forty and played and competed with the San Diego Cameron Highlanders pipe band for five years. Then 9/11 happened and she wrote We Will Remember You, a stirring tribute to the fallen first responders of 9/11. The song is well visited on Youtube and she played Old Lang Syne and Amazing Grace on the pipes in the tune to honor all first responders and what they do everyday.

Most recently, Robyn played with her music partner John, in San Diego, CA in a duo called Highway Seventy Nine. They frequently played for galleries, wine shops, coffee houses, the local Bluegrass Association and House concerts.

Laura Melanie Stein, Blue Moon Prairie BandLaura Melanie Stein: Vocals, Guitar, Keyboards
Laura's first jam session was when she was 5 years old, with her parents, who are both musicians. By the time she was 16, she was playing piano bars, did some time in summer stock in New England, and fronted her first rock band at 18.  Laura fronted various rock cover bands playing all over New York City before heading west to Colorado, working in the Denver music scene. Then, mysteriously, she left music for 10 years. Coming out of this hiatus resulted in an extremely creative songwriting period. To her own suprise her taste in music shifted to Americana, Roots and 'Rockin' Country.  Her songs cover a myriad of topics: love, divorce, suicide, political protest, love of the west, and through all of these, faith. Laura's continual exploration of a force that is bigger than herself has always been her prime mover.Laura resides in a rural artist community in northern New Mexico. 

Caroline Jenney: Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin
The truth about Caroline Jenney:
Caroline has lived quietly and peacefully under two rocks all of her adult life. One rock is inscribed 'art' and the other is inscribed 'music'. At the moment, these rocks reside in the magic southwest near Santa Fe.

Live well, make a plan, be your own rock.
