Kenneth Steven was inspired to write A Song Among the Stones by a talk about early Celtic hermits thought to have made the difficult and dangerous journeys from Iona to seek solitude in Iceland. It was first broadcast by Radio 3’s The Verb and went on to become a choral work by composer John Hearne. Then world renowned harpist Wendy Stewart composed music to be woven through and around the sequence. Wendy and Kenneth have gone on to perform it many times in different corners of Scotland.
