Ian Stephens says that the work ‘uses as its source material a traditional rowing song from Skye. The text is in Scots Gaelic’.

This concert is part of  New Music Manchester festival. 

Also, Ian Stephens has just been commissioned by Truro 3 Arts for a new work to be performed by Cornish pianist Phillip Leslie, celebrating the purchase of a grand piano. The premiere will be in Autumn 2020. The work will draw rhythmic and pitch material from Cornish place-names along the Truro River.
