Likened to Kate Bush, Anna Meredith and Bjork, Esther Swift combines her love of folk, jazz, classical and all things in-between in this brand-new commission from Celtic Connections. Joining Esther (harp and voice) are masterful instrumentalists Emma Lloyd (viola and violin), Patrick Kenny (trombone and alphorn) and Owen Williams (multiple percussion and drums) who together share the stage with electronic musician Matthew Collings to explore intimate and epic soundscapes through rich harmonies, flowering textures, improvisations and pre-sampled recordings. Featuring settings of poems by Rachel McCrum, William Butler Yeats and Glasgow's own Edwin Morgan.
