A series of remarkable, intimate preview gigs has heightened the sense of anticipation around the reunion of Jack Rutter (Seth Lakeman Band), Tom Moore (False Lights) and Archie Churchill-Moss (Beyond the Marches) in the trio that won them the 2011 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award. The intervening years have seen them play with some of the biggest and best acts in English folk music, and in 2015 they reconvene to release the follow-up to their acclaimed, eponymous debut album.
Widely regarded as three of the best players of traditional folk amongst a precociously gifted generation, their finely-crafted arrangements wield a rare potency. II is the culmination of everything they have been striving for, a documentation of their music-making. The result of four solid years of graft, of touring, of performing, and most importantly, of growing in the tradition. It features ancient traditional material from Britain as well as newly composed tunes and songs. II focuses on their own movements from the countryside to large cities, and the contrasts that come into play, liberally sprinkled with the sound of modern electroacoustic grit. This album has as much to do with contemporary music as it does with folk or baroque. Produced by Andy Bell, the record was made in Sheffield in December 2014.
