Folk at the Maltings welcomes cutting edge young duo Tom Moore (viola) and Archie Churchill-Moss (accordion) as guest performers at a concert on Friday, November 1, at the Abbey Theatre Studio in St Albans.

Tom began learning Suzuki-method violin aged four, and Archie has been playing the Diatonic Accordion since age nine. The two formed a duo in their early teens, practising together over the internet, and were New Roots finalists in 2008. Later they formed a trio with guitarist and singer Jack Rutter, with whom they won the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award in 2011 and toured extensively.

They are now performing a programme of brand new instrumental music, almost all of it self-penned and improvised. Taking influences from all corners of Northern Europe, an evening in the musical company of Moore and Moss will leave you mesmerised.

Abbey Theatre Studio, Westminster Lodge, Holywell Hill, St Albans, Friday, November 1, 8pm. Details: 01727 857861
