Ryland Moranz entertains full house at Owl

Everybody loves Ryland. So it was no surprise that Ryland Moranz and his band including a fiddle player, upright bassist Tyson Maiko and drummer Kyle Harmon, played to a packed Owl Acoustic Lounge, April 6 and had everyone eating out of the palm of their hands.
 Opening act Anthony Thielen had them warmed up with some pretty picking and singing.

 Moranz opened his set solo on the banjo for a couple of songs from his solo CD  and switched to guitar his fiddle player joined him for the next song and  the rest of his band joined him for upbeat, perky and almost overly optimistic sounding folk and roots music.

 It was a beautiful as always, especially “ Big, Beautiful World” and “Lay me Down.”

Ryland Moranz puts such genuine joy into his performances, that it is hard not to leave the room with a smile on your face. So I was kind of sad to have left early to catch another gig.
