Thursday, March 14 House Concert with Saskia and Steafan don’t be disappointed, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Usual format, $20 donation in advance.
Saskia, (from Canterbury, Kent), & Steafan, (from Belfast), met last century, in a session at Whitby Folk Festival. They moved to Ontario in 2007 with their 3 children, bringing with them a wealth of musical talent and experience.
Saskia’s musical abilities on bowed strings are wide ranging, from classical to Celtic, to Django-jazz, to songwriter accompaniment. She completed a BA in Jazz and popular music, and won the All Britain Championship in Irish fiddling and slow airs. She leads string sections in 2 orchestras, plays in a jazz/roots duo “2ish”, teaches privately, and is usually seen in public making magic on a violin, viola or nyckelharpa.
Steafan wrote the tutor books: “The Bodhran Book” and “The Low Whistle Book”, which are still best sellers in their fields; and as an ethnomusicologist, he plays a mind-boggling variety of instruments…and takes to gigs a modest selection from his collection of over 900! When not playing and teaching music, Steafan works as a freelance technical director for companies such as Jumblies Theatre, and often teaches music in northern communities for the charity ArtsCanCircle.
Between them, they have played with countless artists in many genres, including Uriah Heep, Loreena Mckennit, Bjork, Depeche Mode, The Band of Hope, SinE, David Newland, Kim Doolittle, Astrid Young, They have recorded on over 60 albums for other artists, and brought out their first duo album last year called “Moorchild”
Steafan & Saskia love working in the theatre, and are seen most years at 4th Line Theatre. They were commissioned to co-write the music for Driving Miss Daisy at The Capitol Theatre, Port Hope, and they developed the music for the Broadway hit, “Come From Away”. Together they play mostly Irish music with a twist of “world”, and storytelling. Sometimes they are joined by their son Oisín Hannigan on percussion.
