Stevens & Pound

BBC Radio 3’s award-winning Delia Stevens and three time BBC Radio 2 Folk Musician of the Year nominee, Will Pound, deliver an unprecedented collaboration, following the creative evolution of the classical composers inspired by folk. Driven by a maverick curiosity, having stumbled upon a completely new world of sound, they combine the traditional instruments of Pound’s melodeon and harmonica with the dizzying array of Stevens’ percussion, and then let their imaginations run riot whilst paying homage to their respective musical roots.

Both at the forefront of their generation in their respective genres, both musicians are renowned for innovation and collaboration:

“percussion from Delia Stevens, whose thoughtful, insistent playing is crucial” The Guardian

Stevens’ work ranges from reimagining Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with percussion for Sky Arts, presenting her own BBC Radio 3 series “Music and Machines” – exploring the future of music and AI following Artist Residencies at the Sage Gateshead and the University of Leeds – to performing Avner Dorman’s prolific 360° percussion concerto at Prague’s Last Night of the Proms with the Beethoven Academy Orchestra followed by a tour of Germany with the Lausitzer Philharmonie. She is an Associate Artist of the Royal Northern College of Music where she won the concerto competition and Gold Medal prize and is a double winner of the Royal Over-Seas League Award.

“One of the world’s top harmonica players” Daily Telegraph
