Tom Moore & Archie Moss
March 16, 2022 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM GMT£10 – £25
Widely regarded as two of the best players and innovators in traditional folk amongst a precociously gifted generation, Moore & Moss’ finely crafted arrangements wield a rare potency. Now, having toured with some of the biggest and brightest acts on the British folk scene, they reconvene to perform as a duo.
Their latest record, Spectres, further unites the deep and resolute harmony of Moss’s accordion with the texture and flow of Moore’s viola; with droning, whirring, sparkling layers of electro-acoustic grit provoking a subtle complexity of palette.
Whilst intrinsically borrowing from English and other European traditional dance form, sonically Moore and Moss have their heads firmly in the present, understanding the values of contemporary music and art-making. The distinct pulse and intuition of trad-music haunts their playing as they continue to quietly reconsider English instrumental music, listening and responding to the world around them as much as their musical ancestors.
