Suite Uist

Abstract

Suite Uist, composed by Anna-Wendy Stevenson celebrates her Island home, place and the music she is surrounded by. Taking traditional Gaelic music forms and working with modes found in Hebridean song, the concept apart from celebrating place, was to explore the possibility of writing new music which sounds deceptively ‘old’ throwing up questions of what constitutes concepts of ‘newness’ and ‘authenticity’. This suite is recorded on the Far Flung Collective's Far Flung Corner's CD. Performances at International festivals including: Lighthouse Theatre, Poole (March 2016), Celtic Colours (Canada October 2016) and Celtic Connections Festival (Glasgow January 2017)
