Featuring seven of the UK’s top instrumentalists in two incredible ensembles, the Eccentric Orbits Tour showcases the unique and distinctive music of Leveret and Spiro in a show that will fly the flag for new English instrumental music. The two groups share much of the same raw material – tunes from a handful of 18th-century tunebooks, as well as original compositions – but their musical orbits follow widely divergent paths.

This joint tour is a limited opportunity to hear the contrasting music of two of England’s finest and most original instrumental ensembles, and will include a unique joint finale. An evening of thrilling new acoustic music that combines consummate musicianship, compelling delivery and captivating spontaneity.

“One of my favourite concerts of the year, because both were inspiringly good and completely different in their musical approaches and live presentation style. Hard to top!” Ian Anderson, fRoots magazine, on the first Leveret / Spiro double-header at Homegrown festival.
