Midnight Moonlight is the thirteenth studio album by the New Riders of the Purple Sage, released in 1992 on the Relix Records label.[1][2][3][4]

Midnight Moonlight features studio recordings of original and cover songs, performed in a style heavily influenced by bluegrass and American folk music. The instrumentation is largely acoustic, with no drums. This is in contrast to most earlier New Riders albums, which emphasized electric country rock.
