Based in the small Bedfordshire village of Dunton, Biggleswade, Dunton Folk organises a series of folk music concerts and traditional sessions throughout the year. In addition we also organise the annual Wassail in an orchard in the centre of Dunton. 

The folk music concerts take place in the superb setting of St Mary Magdalene Church. The doors open at 7.30 and concerts start at 8.00.

The acoustics of the church lend themselves to live music and a superb atmosphere is generated when live music is performed. A full bar is provided at all of our concerts by John and Janice of the March Hare pub.

The sessions that we organise are held on the first Tuesday of each month from 8pm onwards in the March Hare pub in the centre of Dunton. The sessions are very informal and new musicians are always welcome. Come along and join in or simply sit back and listen.

Our wassail is held in January each year at an orchard in Dunton in association with our sister organisation Dunton Cider. We have morris dancers, singers, musicians and a mummers play. We serve mulled cider before waking the apple trees in the orchard with singing and other loud noises. Once this is done, we retire to the March Hare for more cider and an evening of music.

Moore Moss Rutter

It has been 3 years since the release of Moore Moss Rutter's second studio album 'II' - and there is a heightened sense of anticipation around the reunion of Tom Moore (fiddle, viola), Archie Churchill-Moss (melodeon) and Jack Rutter (guitar) in the trio that won them the 2011 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award. Widely regarded as three of the best players, innovators and performers in traditional folk amongst a precociously gifted generation, their finely-crafted arrangements wield a rare potency. Now, having toured with some of the biggest and brightest acts in the British folk scene, they reconvene to release their third record together which will mark a decade of performing as a band.

'III' (released April 2018 on Hudson Records) harbours the trio's talents as instrumental composers and curators, featuring a diverse yet cohesive collection of primarily self-penned material.

The distinct pulse, energy and group-intuition of trad-music haunts their playing as they continue to push the creative boundaries for English instrumental music, listening and responding to the world around them as much as their musical ancestors.

Tom Moore is a unique fiddle player, violist and composer originally from Norfolk. He is currently studying for a specialist creative music masters at Goldsmiths, University of London, and is in-demand as a session musician and collaborator on projects working across several fields including folk, improvisational and electronic.

Archie Churchill-Moss is based in Bristol and is one of England's top melodeon players and tune-writers, whose work is stylistically informed by English and French music. He is currently touring with Sam Kelly's Lost Boys; alongside Tom in False Lights; and teaches in the Folk department at Leeds College of Music.

Jack Rutter is a highly respected guitarist, singer and multi-instrumentalist from West Yorkshire. The recent release of his debut solo album has been met with across-the-board acclaim, and he has toured extensively with Seth Lakeman, Jackie Oates, Molly Evans Trio, and many more bands.
