GFG Featured Artist: Moondog

Moondog – The German Years 1977 – 1999

Moondog was a strange dude.  One part outsider artist, one part brilliant composer and one part instrument maker.  He spent a chunk of his life living on the streets in NYC and would commonly be seen dressed as a Viking.  His compositions were beautiful and strange, but above all they were brilliant.  He worked with a lot of great composers and conductors right up until his death in 1999.
