Archie Churchill-Moss first started the Diatonic Accordion at the age of 9 in Somerset. His family have always had a firm foot in the English tradition.


Widely regarded as one of the best players of English traditional folk, Archie has readily worked as a session musician for some of the top UK English folk acts, as well as performing with his trio, ‘Moore, Moss, Rutter’ - The outfit that saw him receive the coveted BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award in 2011.

With a contemporary approach to composition and arrangement Archie has developed a style of playing that draws as much influence from the tradition as it does modern popular music. He is currently seen to perform with: ‘Moore, Moss, Rutter’, ‘Sam Kelly & the Lost Boys’ and ‘False Lights’
