‘What was remarkable was the delicacy and quality of their playing and the empathy between the three men, watching each other intently as they progressed from repeated melody lines to subtle, spontaneous variations. It was a magical set’ – The Guardian

‘This glimmering set of instrumentals cuts unfailingly elegant lines’ – The Sunday Times

‘Sublime, exquisite music – don’t miss them’ – Martin Simpson

Leveret is a unique collaboration between three of England’s finest folk musicians. Andy Cutting (button accordion), Sam Sweeney (fiddle) and Rob Harbron (concertina) are each regarded as exceptional performers and masters of their instruments.

Together their performances combine consummate musicianship, compelling delivery and captivating spontaneity. Leveret’s music is not arranged in the conventional sense and the trio rely on mutual trust and musical interaction to create new settings of their repertoire in the moment, with no two performances alike. Their playing is relaxed and natural, drawing audiences in and inviting them to share in music making that is truly spontaneous and yet deeply timeless.

Leveret’s music is firmly rooted in the English tradition but sounds fresh and new. With their first three albums and over a long string of sell-out gigs, the trio have built a strong reputation as superb musicians, fine tunesmiths and captivating performers. On their new album Diversions they have brought their trademark groove, energy and intuitive playing to bear on a newly unearthed set of upbeat and accessible traditional gems – truly great music from a band at the top of their game.
