Savourna Stevenson and Steve Kettley at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018
Clarsach virtuoso Savourna Stevenson joins forces with old friend and saxophonist Steve Kettley in a new duo showcasing her compositions – a blend of haunting melodies, pulsating rhythms and stirring improvisations. 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.
Stevenson will be performing with saxophonist Steve Kettley at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe later in the summer. Performances will take place at the Acoustic Music Centre (venue 138), the Ukrainian Community Centre, 14 Royal Terrace, Edinburgh, EH7 5AB. The duo will be performing on Saturday the 11th of August from 22:00 and Sunday the 19th of August from 20:30.
