In 2007 Trevor Moss & Hannah-Lou established their now legendary acoustic club, The Lantern Society, upstairs in a small room above a Dickensian pub in the City of London. Over the coming years their humble wooden stage would be graced by countless players, from multi-million selling recording artists to fledgling talents.
In 2009 the club became home to The Lantern Society Radio Hour, an online radio show, hosted by Trevor Moss, featuring the very best performances fresh from their much coveted stage. The noteworthy result was the forging of a unique and definitive document, live from the frontline of a constantly evolving folk scene. With an old-school broadcasting style ala Bob Harris and the industrious spirit of Alan Lomax's field recordings, the archive was sought out by The British Library's National Sound Archive, for inclusion and preservation for generations to come.
Later that year, in order to meet their recording and touring commitments, the founding pair passed the club on to Lantern regulars and esteemed musicians Benjamin Folke Thomas and Jack Day. The original Lantern is still going strong today, captained by Gibraltan poet and singer-songwriter, Gabriel Moreno.
In January 2017, Trevor Moss & Hannah-Lou reignited the Lantern once more, founding a sister club in their now adopted hometown of Hastings, and re-launched the Lantern Society Radio Hour.
