Leveret is a unique collaboration between three of England’s finest folk musicians. Andy Cutting, Sam Sweeney and Rob Harbron are each regarded as exceptional performers and masters of their instruments. Together their performances combine consummate musicianship, compelling delivery and captivating spontaneity.
The National Youth Folk Ensemble brings together talented young folk musicians from across England. Sparks invariably fly when they create their own contemporary takes on traditional music from England and beyond. These exceptional 14-18 year-olds meet four times a year for intensive weeks of music-making, led by Artistic Director Sam Sweeney, with top folk musicians including Rob Harbron, Miranda Rutter, Andy Cutting, Emma Reid and Sam Partridge.
The National Youth Folk Ensemble is an English Folk Dance and Song Society programme supported by Arts Council England.
