Buswell & Nyberg's Spectacular Pop-up Folk Orchest

Buswell & Nyberg's Spectacular Pop-up Folk Orchest


Musical trailblazers Shaun Buswell & Erik Nyberg return to Leeds to create another one-off concert with a pop-up orchestra made from locally-sourced, free-range musicians. Playing a mix of Buswell & Nyberg’s music, unique versions of some popular songs, renditions of classic movie/TV theme tunes, as well as performances from local special guests Esme Bridie & Ella Playford (who will also perform a unique rendition of one of their songs with the orchestra), it’ll be a night to remember.

_"Beautiful music"_ – BBC News
_“The lush orchestral pop-with-a-purpose……sent shivers down my spine”_ – The Independent
_“The result is truly magical. The creation of sound right in front of your eyes is something truly special”_ – Louder Than War 
_"Buswell is like an affable tramp who’s just returned from a fantasy land and wants to regale you with his adventures"_ - Mestival
