Leveret - In the Round

[Leveret's] second album comes exactly a year since their debut. ...The decision was made to record a new set there and then [on tour]; live and literally in the round. ‘In The Round’ finds Leveret taking another small step in their mission in rediscovering and reintroducing music from the archive but played in a fresh contemporary setting. Not satisfied with simply playing the tunes, they garnish them with twists and turns which add their own originality and personality to the sound. ... It’s three musicians totally locking into what you’d like to call a groove and that sense of togetherness. --Mike Ainscoe, Louder than War Button accordion, English concertina
