Here's the spiel we all know and love...

Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou are rare musicians. This formidable young husband and wife duo are redefining the modern folk musician. Their resilient and perfectly synchronised union of heart and mind hollers and sings in euphonious harmony, dancing elegantly with words masterfully placed.

In 2008 TM&HL established the thriving hubbub and forum that is ‘London’s finest folk club’, ‘The Lantern Society,’ which in 2009 also became the home of ‘Lantern Society Radio Hour.’ Hosted by Trevor Moss, this remarkable bimonthly show features the best live performances straight from their much coveted stage, interviews with the performers, and an ‘On This Day in Music’ segment.

The noteworthy result is the forging of a unique and definitive document, live from the frontline, of a constantly evolving folk scene, in which TM&HL have become pre-eminent and pivotal figures. To celebrate The Lantern Society’s 24th hour of broadcasting, we asked Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou to guest edit this week’s Loose Music playlist. They kindly obliged, hand picking tracks that appear as part of their eclectic live sets. Selecting tracks from: Donovan, Woody Guthrie, Fairport Convention and Old Crow Medicine Show amongst others. You can tune it now via Spotify here -

They decided to become a duo after having released the highly acclaimed eponymous album ‘Indigo Moss’ with their band in 2007 on Simon Tong (Verve/Gorillaz/The Good The Bad and The Queen) and uber-producer Youth’s Butterfly Recordings label. Touring nationally and receiving high billing at some of the country’s most prestigious festivals, including Green Man, Secret Garden Party, and End of the Road, a high profile national support tour with Albarn’s supergroup followed. Argued by many to be the forerunning album to the current mainstream folk and bluegrass revival, three singles were released off the debut record, gaining the song-writing partnership much national radio play. Consecutive singles achieved record of the week status on BBC Radio 2’s Radcliffe and Maconie, and Phil Jupitus shows. A rooftop performance on the Queen Elizabeth Hall, and a show at Le Centre P√©nitentiaire pour Femmes de Rennes, France’s largest maximum security women’s prison, were highlights of the short but illustrious career of TM&HL’s ‘Indigo Moss.’

Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou have also been invited to be committee members for the Camden Crawl 2010, representing folk, country and roots music at the festival. Anyone who’s ever been will know that it is a mammoth operation, defining the music of the capital. Full line-up details to follow early next year.

The Lantern Society takes place at the Betsey Trotwood, Farringdon Rd, London. EC1R 3BL. Every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month. The Lantern Society Radio Hour is available for free subscription at iTunes and via their website. Trevor Moss and Hannah-Lou will be taking The Lantern Society on tour in the coming months - towns/venues/dates etc will be announced very soon.
