Scotland on Tour brings top musicians to Lenzie

As part of Scotland on Tour initiative virtuoso clarsachist and harpist Savourna Stevenson and noted saxophonist Steve Kettley will perform at St Cyprian’s Church, Lenzie, on Saturday, July 30.

The duo, who have known each other for more than 20 years, have been enjoying a successful and creative reunion since 2017, performing at festivals and concerts throughout the UK.

They will release their duo CD The Wine of Life on the Cooking Vinyl label next month.

The pair will perform a dynamic blend of haunting melodies, pulsating rhythms and stirring improvisations – breaking stylistic barriers while maintaining Scottish roots.
