Lead Vocalist, Guitar
Teresa Mooney was born in Danville, Virginia, not far from the site of the Wreck of the Old ’97. Virginia is also the first home of the Carter Family and it was in this rich atmosphere of old tales and roots music that Teresa was raised.
Her home life was infused with a family-wide love of all kinds of music that she was exposed to from an early age. She states she is pretty sure she was singing before she could talk properly and hasn’t stopped since.
Teresa became a member of Bayview Sound in 2012 and says she has loved every minute of it. She sings, plays guitar, banjitar, keyboard, various percussion instruments, and is learning the bass (“it’s harder than it looks!!”) She hopes one day to learn how to play the cello.
Teresa is also a member of the swing and jazz band “Sway” which she and Richard Hughes formed upon their discovery of a mutual love of the great standards. (And Lewis Carroll). “It’s all about the music!” You can learn more about Sway by clicking the link below which will direct you to the official Facebook page.
