Savourna Stevenson & Steve Kettley
Thu 9 May - Fri 10 May 2019
Thu 9 May in An Tobar, Fri 10 May in Iona Library
Clarsach virtuoso Savourna joins forces with old friend and saxophonist Steve in a new duo showcasing her compositions – a blend of haunting melodies, pulsating rhythms and stirring improvisations - daring yet accessible. Savourna is known for breaking stylistic barriers while maintaining her Scottish roots. She has collaborated with musicians such as Aly Bain, Eddi Reader and Toumani Diabate, and is acclaimed for recent orchestral and choral works.
Steve leads several groups playing his original music, plus Orange Claw Hammer, interpreting the music of avant-rock legend Captain Beefheart. He also performs regularly with former Scottish national poet Liz Lochhead.
