When: 1st September 2017 @19:30 – 1st September 2017
Scotland-based singer-songwriter Lizabett Russo merges her native traditions with elements of contemporary jazz, avant garde folk and world music, a range of influence effortlessly spanned by her powerfully versatile voice.
In 2013, Lizabett released her EP entitled The Traveller’s Song, which found favour with online publications from across Europe, the US and Canada. Her stock across Europe is high, having played shows in Amsterdam, Zurich, Barcelona, Paris and Bucharest while her presence in UK led to supporting acclaimed musicians such as Rachel Sermanni, Rozi Plain, Tim Edey and Trembling Bells and playing at some prestigious festivals such as the Cambridge Folk Festival and Celtic Connections.
IronStar Films have selected 2 of her songs to be played in an independent short movie called ‘Bloodloss’. The movie has received special mentions at independent film festivals in Los Angeles, Calgary, Marbella and Melbourne and Ontario.
In 2015, Lizabett toured Japan and Seoul promoting her debut album ‘Running with the Wolves’ and she was back in Asia in 2016 with another tour promoting her new album ‘The Burning Mountain’ (released April 2016).
“This is simply world-class work, by any standard.” Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6
Lizabett will be accompanied by the award-winning jazz guitarist Graeme Stephen.
Graeme Stephen was born in Aberdeen, Scotland and has been playing guitar since the age of 9. Today he leads and contributes to a multitude of musical projects in Scotland and overseas, playing a wide array of styles from free improvised jazz to Scottish folk. Stephen’s peerless improvisational skills and talent for composition make him one of Scotland’s most exciting and prodigious musical talents. As a composer Stephen writes music that reflects his diverse musical interests, but with a gift for melodic and rhythmic accessibility amongst the more expansive free form colours. He has written a significant body of extraordinary film music, with his scores to the early masterpieces of 20s German cinema. Stephen’s instrument is in a sense more than a guitar, as he seamlessly uses loop pedals and effects as a fully integrated part of his musical language.
