Moody is on tour promoting her new album "These Wilder Things" which came out last spring. The album's sounds contain elements of gospel, bluegrass and Irish folk music.

Moody will be bringing her acclaimed band including Adrian Dolan on fiddle, mandolin, viola, mandola, accordion, and vocals; Adam Dobres playing electric and acoustic guitars, ukulele, vocals; and Sam Howard on upright bass and vocals.

The Petersburg Art's Council helped organize the event.

Petersburg is the second stop on Moody's tour. After leaving town she'll be performing in Juneau, Haines, Skagway, Valdez and Anchorage.
