Show Information

GAVIN FAIRHALL LEVER brings together three acclaimed musicians to present a fresh, contemporary folk
music born of their diverse roots. Punk fiddle meets jazz bass and Balkan guitar, in a colourful mix of the
traditional and the original. Their debut LP was released in October 2022 on Penny Fiddle Records, and was
recorded live to tape at Analogue Catalogue Studios in Northern Ireland with Julie McLarnon (Lankum, Alasdair
Roberts, Brian Eno).
Known for his consistently strong collaborative work at the forefront of London’s thriving folk scene, with TEYR,
The Rad Orchestra, and Jez Hellard, multi-instrumentalist and composer James Patrick Gavin creates music
that dances a line between tradition and irreverence. His work has been described as ‘High energy brilliance’ –
Folk Radio UK, ‘Hugely impressive’ – fRoots, and ‘Dazzling’ – RnR Magazine. This new trio showcases Gavin’s
melodic invention and his mastery of the full range of sounds and textures of the violin.
‘The sound of today’s London Irish’ – Mark Radcliffe BBC Radio 2.
Adrian Lever has played on stages from Lewes Guitar Festival to the Barbican. ‘Outstanding musicianship’ –
Rainlore’s World. He performs with leading English folk fiddlers John Dipper & Emily Askew as part of Alma –
‘Seductive.. spry, intelligent’ (Sunday Times). Lever’s clear tenor voice delivers the songs of the trio, while his
seasoned and steady guitarist’s hand forms the rhythmic heart, complete with characteristic Balkan and
flamenco stylings.
Tim Fairhall contributes a distinctive style, coming from a background in contemporary jazz, improv and postclassical
electronica. His playing has been described as ‘First class.. rounded beauty’ (Jazz Journal). He has
performed on stages as diverse as Cologne Philharmonic and Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, and with musicians
ranging from Sephardic singer Yasmin Levy to the piano/laptop-led trio Piano Interrupted; he brings an
improvisational alertness and sensitivity, jazz musicianship and an adventurous spirit to the trio.
Together, the venturesome trio represent the best of collaborative creation, and are a compelling new voice on
the contemporary folk scene.
