Moore, Moss, Rutter
7pm Sun 11 June at The Allendale Centre Minster Hall | £20.00
Moore, Moss, Rutter are a trio who play traditional English, contemporary and self composed tunes with influences from numerous styles and traditions.
The intervening years have seen them play with some of the biggest and best acts in English folk music, and now they reconvene to release the follow-up to their acclaimed, eponymous debut album. Widely regarded as three of the best players of traditional folk amongst a precociously gifted generation, their finely-crafted arrangements wield a rare potency.
Their music features ancient traditional material from Britain as well as newly composed tunes and songs, and focuses on their own movements from the countryside to large cities, and the contrasts that come into play, liberally sprinkled with the sound of modern electroacoustic grit.
This trio has as much to do with contemporary music as it does with folk or baroque.
