It has been three years since the release of Moore Moss Rutter's second studio album 'II' - and there is a heightened sense of anticipation around the reunion of Tom Moore (fiddle, viola), Archie Churchill-Moss (melodeon) and Jack Rutter (guitar) as the trio that won the 2011 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award.
Widely regarded as three 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 some of the biggest and brightest acts in the British folk scene, they reconvene to release their third record together to will mark a decade of performing as a band.
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. Charged, visceral and gutsy at points; subtly reflective and sensitive at others; this new album captures the amplitude of Moore Moss Rutter's fierce live performances.
