LEVERET

ANDY CUTTING • SAM SWEENEY • ROB HARBRON

“Classy players … their intuitive way with tunes is glorious” Mojo

Leveret features three of England's finest folk musicians in an exciting new collaboration. Andy Cutting, Sam Sweeney and Rob Harbron are each regarded as masters of their instrument and are involved in numerous collaborations with a huge range of artists. Together their performances combine consummate musicianship, compelling delivery and captivating spontaneity.

Leveret's music is firmly rooted in the English tradition but sounds fresh and new, with original settings of ancient tunes sitting alongside new compositions by some of today's finest tunesmiths in the folk field. Their music is not arranged at all in the conventional sense: instead it is played entirely in the moment, combining consummate musicianship, compelling delivery and captivating spontaneity in a sound which feels both timeless and contemporary. The material may come from archive sources and manuscripts, but there is nothing academic or historical about the sound: it's warm, listenable, engaging and refreshing.

Now they return with Inventions, a new album of original material that brings Leveret’s trademark groove, energy and intuitive playing to bear on a set of new tunes composed by the trio, three of today's finest tunesmiths in the folk field.

This is all about the joy of playing and the intoxicating thrill of three masters of their craft weaving in and out of each other’s skilful manipulation of tunes with barely a forethought – theirs is a music of mutual faith and trust that emerges with the sort of purity that can never be created with masses of planning. Edge-of-the-seat stuff and all the more glorious for it.” ***** fRoots March 2016
