Welcome to Half Moon Highway, a collective of highly experienced UK-based musicians, available for hire by touring artists for gigs, tours and session work


It can be expensive for artists touring internationally to fly in their own musicians, so our idea was to set up a one-stop shop of UK musicians. You can hire any number of us, from individuals to a full band.

We’ve all played together before in a variety of line-ups and touring set-ups, so we all know each other, are used to how each other play and can learn material quickly. We’ve all done numerous radio, TV and video sessions.

Instruments we currently offer include: acoustic guitar, electric guitar, double bass, electric bass, pedal-steel and lap-steel guitars, dobro, banjo, keyboards, mandolin, fiddle and drums/percussion. Need a different instrument? Just ask, we know many musicians all over the UK who can help.

Our players include two Americana Music Association UK Best Instrumentalist award-winners, and between us we have played with artists including Billy Bragg, Kris Kristofferson, Bennett Wilson Poole, Hannah Rose Platt, Jaime Wyatt, Sam Outlaw, Amelia White, Danny and the Champions of the World, the Wandering Hearts, Robert Vincent, Annie Keating, the Travelling Band and the Dreaming Spires.
