Tom Moore & Archie Moss (support)

November 01, 2019

Folk at the Maltings (Acoustic Folk Roots) featuring Tom Moore and Archie Churchill Moss (Folk) plus Finn Collinson (Folk) plus Eleanor Dunsdon (Folk) at The Abbey Theatre, St Albans.

Tom Moore (Viola) and Archie Churchill-Moss (Accordion) have become key performers on the instrumental folk music scene in the last few years, both appearing in a host of bands. They have also performed as a duo since their early teens and are now performing a programme of brand new instrumental music – almost all of it self-penned and improvised. Taking influence from all corners of Northern Europe and from fresh contemporary art music, an evening in the musical company of Moore and Moss will leave you mesmerised, inspired and thrilled. Support is provided by New Roots finalist, Finn Collinson, and harpist Eleanor Dunsdon.

Finn is a recorder player and folk musician from East Anglia who also plays guitar, mandolin, bouzouki and whistle. His music is a diverse exploration of folk music on the recorder, spanning early/Renaissance art music, traditional English tunes, American bluegrass and original compositions and he has just released his solo album.

Eleanor took up the Clarsach at the age of 9 with BBC award winning folk musician Luke Daniels and performed with his Gael Music Academy across the country. She went on to pursue a career in classical harp but has been unable to shake her roots. This summer Eleanor gave her first performance at St Albans Folk Festival and took to the main stages at Broadstairs Folk Week and Towersey Festival.
