About this Event
Local pianist and award-winning composer Steve Luck is delighted to bring the fifth edition of the Great Northern Piano Sessions back to Gosforth Civic Theatre after the enforced break in live music performances due to COVID 19. He is especially glad to be putting this show on in front of a real live audience.
Steve who is the founder of the Atmospherica Concert series will perform a selection of his pieces which are influenced by his Tyneside and Northumbrian roots and will give the debut live performance of his brand new single ‘Tesoro’ which is released this same weekend. In the past few years Steve has released four solo piano EP’s as well as composing music for film and television.
Steve is also delighted to be sharing the stage with Simeon Walker. After a decade working as a musician, UK-based pianist & composer Simeon has quickly emerged as a leading light in the burgeoning Modern Classical scene, following the release of his first EP ‘Preface’ and his debut full length album ‘Mono’. He has recently completed recording his 2nd album with funding support from Help Musicians UK.
In recent years, Simeon has performed & toured across the UK and Europe, including supporting S. Carey, Sebastian Plano & Loscil, whilst also appearing at Latitude Festival (UK), Q3Ambientfest (DE), FAN Festival (PT) and a range of concerts, shows and live music events.
He has received notable support radio support from BBC Radio 3, BBC 6Music, BBC World Service & BBC Introducing, alongside Seattle-based KEXP and Berlin-based NeoFM, and his music has been streamed 10 million times across platforms. He also founded and curates Brudenell Piano Sessions; an intimate and varied concert series highlighting the diverse music being composed and performed on the piano.
In a busy, scrolling-fuelled world, Simeon’s calm, introspective piano-based instrumentals invite the listener to find stillness, beauty and meaning as much in the spaces between the notes as the notes themselves, as musical stories are woven with each tender, intimate performance.
