A former United Church minister in Minden Hills and Algonquin Highlands is returning for a visit, hosting an upcoming concert on Saturday, Sept. 21.
In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Edward Moll served as minister for congregations in Minden, Carnarvon, and Maple Lake.
“That was another life, another time,” he told The Highlander. “I am now a singer songwriter living in Barrie.”
Moll said he writes and sings original songs crossing genres between folk, jazz, blues, and European chanson.
“My beloved wife, an accomplished musician herself, has trouble defining where I fit in,” he said.
“If you can think of Bruce Cockburn, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, and Gillian Welch getting together over a few whiskeys and jamming, you can get the general idea of what I do.”
Moll has a CD of original music produced by Don Bray, “Small Things Shining Bright” and has just finished recording another CD, “Caught,” at Crush Studios, produced by Ray Dillard.
The Haliburton Highlands Brewery will be hosting his concert on Saturday, Sept. 21 from 7-9:30 p.m. Cost is $20. To read more about Edward Moll [aka Edward St Moritz] see edwardstmoritz.com
