The Big Session

Buxton Opera House

Levellers Acoustic

30 Apr 2017




Plus support: Honey Ryder

In an acoustic performance, Brighton folk/punk band Levellers celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of their second full-length, and now classic, album Levelling the Land. They have toured in Australia for the first time this year, returned to the US for their first dates there in over a decade and have announced plans for a new album in 2017.

Their platinum-selling 1991 album Levelling The Land features the hit singles One Way, 15 Years and Far From Home plus The Game, Liberty Song, Sell Out, Another Man’s Cause, Riverflow, Boatman and the incendiary Battle Of The Beanfield. During the summer of 1991, Levelling The Land redefined the UK’s musical landscape.

Emerging victorious through the ups and downs of label deals, the spats with the music press and the wear and tear of touring, Levellers are still going strong after nearly 30 years in the game. They run their own label, have their own studio and their own festival. Love them or hate them: you can’t help but admire them.

Levellers released their Greatest Hits in 2014 via their own On The Fiddle Recordings label and are re-issuing Levelling the Land in 2016 as a 2CD/DVD package, plus on vinly and  box set. A film about the band, A Curious Life, told through the unique perspective of Jeremy Cunningham, the band’s bass player and artist, was also recently released on DVD.
