Legendary Levellers ‘Greatest Hits’ collaborations tour coming to South Yorkshire

Folk-rock legends, The Levellers have just released their Greatest Hits album, which features some interesting collaborations, along with announcing their accompanying European tour with two-tone, troubadours The Selecter and solo multi-instrumentalist Laura Kidd aka She Makes War.

Set to appear in South Yorkshire at Sheffield’s o2 Academy on 20th November, performing a selection of their finest material to date. From the folk punk roots of Carry Me, through the anthemic One Way, Fifteen Years, Hope Street, Just The One and Beautiful Day to more recent tracks such as Truth Is and Cholera Well, all show the Levellers’ mix of scathing political comment and positive DIY attitude to life hasn’t dissipated with age.

Most exciting of all, the Greatest Hits includes 4 brand new collaborations with contemporary artists re-working some of their classic material. Imelda May is the queen of all time on Beautiful Day. Bellowhead take on Just The One and Billy Bragg performs Hope Street. Finally, Frank Turner breathes new life into Julie, one of his favourite songs whilst growing up, bringing us back full circle for another generation of the disenfranchised to discover the Levellers for the first time.
