Live music from some of Bristol’s best performers in Tobacco Factory Cafe Bar, every Sunday 8-10pm.
Archie Churchill-Moss is one of Britain’s foremost squeezers; a 29-year-old diatonic button accordion player from Somerset who grew up immersed in English and French traditional dance music. Playing a custom layout (three-row, eighteen-bass) VanderAa accordion, he challenges what most would think of as possible on the instrument. In recent years he has found himself in demand as a session player and collaborator with many acts from the UK folk scene (including Eliza Carthy, Cara Dillon, Sam Kelly, Jim Moray & more).
It is wholly modern music that, for the most part, could still be called “danceable” by the most fervent Morris or Bal enthusiast. It is brimming with the lilt, groove and joy so associated with such music. The album was recorded and filmed completely live in the studio over four days in Spring 2022.
