Smiley leads her fiery roots vocal-band in lush vocal musical harmonies exploring the depths of early American and Balkan traditional song. VOCO sings powerful, emotional music with a delicious vaudevillian combo of cello, accordion and banjo. Sprinkled throughout their songs are rompin' stompin' body percussion sets - always a show-stopping pleasure. Voted #1 a cappella band in the U.S. at the National Harmony Sweepstakes, the four members of VOCO create post-folk songs while digging into old Americana and Eastern European sounds. Moira Smiley & VOCO are the perfect blend of grit and transcendence.
