“Three of England’s finest traditional players weaving exquisite tapestries out of old and new tunes. Just sublime. I can’t recommend seeing them live enough. ” — Verity Sharp, BBC Radio 3
Leveret features three of England’s finest folk musicians – Andy Cutting, Rob Harbron, Sam Sweeney – in an acclaimed collaboration, and we’re delighted to welcome them back to Halsway.
Fiddler Sam Sweeney was voted ‘Musician of the Year’ at the 2015 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards thanks to his work in Bellowhead, Eliza Carthy’s Wayward Band, The Full English and his own Made In The Great War project. He is the inaugural Artistic Director of the National Youth Folk Ensemble.
Melodeon genius Andy Cutting is a three-time winner of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards ‘Musician of the Year’ award, and as well as his new trio with Martin Simpson and Nancy Kerr currently performs with Blowzabella, Topette, June Tabor, and Roger Daltry.
Concertina wizard Rob Harbron is known for his work with The Full English (Best Group and Best Album BBC Folk Awards 2014), Emma Reid, Fay Hield, Jon Boden and others.
