Moddelmog Hardin & Mayo (MHM) have been performing together since 2017.
Nikki Moddelmog’s distinctive musical style puts her in good company on the folk-pop spectrum, somewhere between Ani DiFranco and Patti Griffin. Her songs are at once deeply personal and profoundly universal, and her onstage manner is a delightful blend of supreme confidence and awkward self-consciousness. One reviewer called her “a charming and disarming mélange of contradictions.”
Dennis Hardin has been a fixture in the Wichita acoustic music world for the last couple decades. Playing with a number of local and regional performers over that time, he’s collected a variety of songs and a trunkful of instruments on which to perform them. He has gathered up tunes from all over the musical spectrum and arranged them for guitar, mandolin, octave mandolin, tenor tele and the occasional uke.
Dr. Susan Mayo has been part of the musical landscape of Kansas for over 30 years and is active as a cellist, composer, and community arts organizer. She is passionate about using sound, the universal tongue, as a vehicle for creating community and celebrating place. She has performed globally with both classical and alternative ensembles and is currently co-executive director of Flint Hills Counterpoint an ecology arts project based in Marion County Kansas, music director for Symphony in the Flint Hills fall event Woodfest, board chair of the Historic Sunflower Theatre, guest lecturer at Wichita State University and a member of the Wichita Symphony Orchestra.
