Moore Moss Rutter formed in 2009 and quickly rose to prominence, collecting the BBC Young Folk Award at The Brewery, London in 2011. The band have continued to tour and build their following, producing two acclaimed albums, with ‘III’ completing the trilogy.
'III' is the third album from highly regarded English instrumental trio Moore Moss Rutter. Recorded in the Welsh countryside as full live takes by award winning producer Andy Bell, ‘III’ is a tapestry of influences which weaves Folk Dance and music traditions from England with others from across continental Europe. Sonically, Moore Moss Rutter (and producer, Andy Bell) have their heads firmly in the present, and the material is furnished in resolutely contemporary style.
'III' is a uniquely intimate record – the third in a trilogy which charts the growth of these three artists. Charged, visceral and gutsy at points; subtle, reflective and sensitive at others; the recordings capture the amplitude of Moore Moss Rutter's live performances.
