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.
“Classy players … their intuitive way with tunes is glorious.”
“You won’t find English folk music played better than this.”
“The intimacy and the intensity of this in the round experience was unlike anything I had heard all year. “In folk, it’s the sound of what’s to come”
“Music of a rich, sinewy immersion, guided by a mutual sense of exploration, space and a very English kind of swing. It’s an intimate, contemporary reinvention of the source material”
“This glimmering set of instrumentals cuts unfailingly elegant lines”
The Sunday Times
“Sublime, exquisite music – don’t miss them”
