Moving On Skiffle is the forty-fourth studio album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison, released in March 2023 via Exile and Virgin.

Moving On Skiffle finds Van Morrison taking a homemade style that exploded across Britain in the mid-1950s and infusing it with a level of sophistication and soulfulness that it didn’t always possess the first time around.

The 23-track album goes to the heart of the music Van Morrison has inhabited ever since he was six years old, hanging out in the smoky confines of Belfast’s Atlantic Records. It also contains songs that underline, in their messages on the importance of freedom and living on your own terms, his lifetime philosophy.

Van Morrison says, “I was still in school when I performed with a skiffle band – a couple of guitars, washboard, tea-chest bass. I was already familiar with Lead Belly’s recordings so when I heard Lonnie Donegan’s version of ‘Rock Island Line’ I intuitively understood what he was creating, I knew that it was what I wanted to do. It was like an explosion. This record retranslates songs from that era”.

This double album 2LP record set is a limited edition on blue coloured vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeves, pressed in Germany via Exile and Virgin.
