6th November 2019
Widely regarded as two of the best players, innovators and performers in traditional folk amongst a precociously gifted generation, their finely-crafted arrangements wield a rare potency. Now, having toured with with some of the biggest and brightest acts in the British folk scene, they reconvene to perform as duo. Whilst intrinsically borrowing from English and other European Traditional Dance music, sonically Moore and Moss have their heads firmly in the present, understanding the values of contemporary music and art making.The distinct pulse, energy and group-intuition of trad-music haunts their playing as they continue to push the creative boundaries for English instrumental music, listening and responding to the world around them as much as their musical ancestors.
