Bath Folk Club presents: Tom Moore & Archie Moss
Friday 3 April 2020
The Assembly Inn, 17 Alfred St, Bath BA1 2QU
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 in the British folk scene, they reconvene to perform as a duo. Their second record (released 2020) is set to further unite the deep and resolute harmony of Moss’ 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.
Doors open at 8:00pm; starts at 8:15pm. Tickets are £10 in advance; £12 at the door. For more information on the gig, see bathfolkfestival.org
