Gavin Fairhall Lever

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. They present their debut gig in Liverpool at the Liverpool Irish Centre as part of their spring tour 2024 and run up to the recording of their second album.

Since 2020 the trio has been busy writing material and touring around Europe and the UK. Highlights include Caceras Irish Fleadh (Spain), Zilleghem Folk (Belgium), Broadstairs Folk Festival, and Celtic Connections Glasgow.

‘Their eponymous debut captur[es] the close-knit improvisational nature of their live performance...The three meld closely to work as one...circling in a perfectly balanced orbit around the tune. Their playing is nuanced as an ensemble and as soloists, rising wraithlike up through the music.’

Songlines

‘The vibrant trio bring their multi-instrumental talents to an impressive collection of mostly original material that is an absolute blast to listen to. One of my top favourites of the year... Brilliant.’

RnR ****

‘GAVIN FAIRHALL LEVER’s ecstatic and adventurous music is a giddy series of tone poems; the sizzling, smoking fiddle and the insistent, questing guitar dart wild and free over a solid anchor of the double bass...razor-sharp composing and surefire musical virtuosity.’
