The Gavin Fairhall Lever Trio (12A)

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.


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. This new trio showcases Gavin’s melodic invention and his mastery of the full range of sounds and textures of the violin.


Adrian Lever has played on stages from Lewes Guitar Festival to the Barbican. 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 post-classical electronica. He has performed on stages as diverse as Cologne Philharmonic and Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club and 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
