Clarsach virtuoso Savourna Stevenson joins 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 Stevenson 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 Kettley leads several groups playing his original
music, plus Orange Claw Hammer, interpreting the music of avant-rock
Captain Beefheart. He also performs regularly with former Scottish national poet Liz Lochhead.
Steve have just arrived back from Noia Harp Festival in Galicia where
their music was warmly received. Their new CD “Wine of Life”, will be released
in January 2023 on Cooking Vinyl Records.

Dunfermline can look forward to an exciting and
virtuosic night of harp and saxophone. Savourna’s compositions draw inspiration
from many of the favourite classical composers including Schumann, Ravel and
Debussy while experimenting across various musical genres including Blue-grass,
Latin, African, jazz and Celtic music. Steve Kettley also contributes
creatively with his delightful Tango Mafioso”
