A pair of instrumental folk bands will join forces to perform in Bristol next month.

Leveret and Spiro will be at St George’s Church in Great George Street on Sunday.

Both bands share similar passions for tunes from a selection of 18th century songbooks.

Leveret create their own music completely in the moment – there are no arrangements and the focus constantly shifts between the band’s three talented musicians.

Bristol-based Spiro draw influences from electronic music to give people a different take on a traditional musical genre.

As well as individual performances, both bands will come together for a stunning finale combining individual talent and captivating spontaneity.

Leveret and Spiro will take to the stage at 8pm on the night.

Tickets, priced £5-17, are available by calling 08454 024001.
