*Moore, Moss, & Rutter - a trio of musicians who are reworking traditional native English tunes and songs into something far more contemporary. They aim to breathe life back into ancient material through complex arrangement, virtuosic musicianship, powerful aesthetic and an ear for detail. 
Their tools - Violin, Melodeon, Guitar and Voice - may be simple enough, but they allow the trio to transport the audience via a journey through utmost subtlety, rustic artisanal beauty, and tempestuous climax! They are in concert at Prema Arts Centre, Bethesda Chapel, Uley GL11 5SS Info: 01453 860703 8pm £15
