Savourna Stevenson and Steve Kettley at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018
Stevenson performed with saxophonist Steve Kettley at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe earlier this year. The duo demonstrated their talents at the Acoustic Music Centre on Saturday the 11th of August and Sunday the 19th of August, where they were well-received by critics and received a four star review in the Scotsman newspaper.
Clarsach virtuoso Savourna Stevenson joined forces with old friend and saxophonist Steve Kettley in a 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.
