About the event

Joint headlining this performance are Grace Smith Trio & Archie Churchill-Moss.

Wielding the distinct voices of fiddle, concertina and double bass, the Grace Smith Trio brings together three like-minded musicians to create one dynamic and expressive musical dialogue. Acclaimed fiddle and viola player Grace Smith is joined by Sam Partridge (Concertina, Electric Guitar) and Bevan Morris (Double Bass) in this innovative ensemble, which offers a fresh take on folk. Drawing deeply from tradition, whilst also expanding their repertoire with new melodies of their own, the Grace Smith Trio explores the boundaries of what folk can be. Bellows, bow and bass come together to mesmerising effect, with music that will stay with you long after you finish listening.

New album, Overleaf, coming from the Grace Smith Trio on 29th September 2023, supported by Help Musicians UK.

Widely regarded as one of the best players of English traditional music, Archie Churchill-Moss has worked as a session musician for some of the UK's top folk acts (Cara Dillon, Eliza Carthy, Blair Dunlop, Jim Moray) and producers (Andy Bell, Ed Harcourt), as well as performing with the trio, 'Moore, Moss, Rutter' - the outfit which saw him receive the coveted BBC radio 2 folk award in 2011.

The past two years have seen Archie tour extensively across western Europe and perform at some of Europe's top music festivals, including headline slots at 'Colours of Ostrava (Czech Republic), Tønder festival (Denmark), Cropredy Convention (UK) and Cambridge folk festival (UK).

With a contemporary approach to composition and arrangement, Archie has developed a style of playing that draws as much influence from the tradition as it does modern popular music. He is currently seen to perform with: 'Tom Moore & Archie Moss', 'Sam Kelly & the Lost Boys' and 'False Lights'.
