Kirk Starkey & Hanna Bech

17 Steven Street, Hamilton, ON, Canada

Kirk Starkey & Hanna Bech


An evening of music, featuring Kirk Starkey, "One of Canada's most inventive Cellists today" CBC Radio 2; and Hamilton's own Queen of Quirk, Hanna Bech. 

Kirk Starkey turns his solo cello into a mosaic of haunting orchestral textures using a laptop and a foot controller.  Wistful, glimmering, and sentient music inspired by visions of a submerged aural landscape.  

Kirk pursues a unique career as a cellist, composer and sound artist. Kirk's solo recordings Little Giddinng (2011), Songs of Sudbury (2016) showcase his original style of integrating extended cello techniques and digital processing into a compelling and accessible medium. 

Hanna Bech is a professor of whimsy and a diviner of hooks, whose muse is a backflipping white ball of fluff.  Bech's sound combines playful piano and voices to create a classically influenced folk-pop with swagger. 

Having recently performed witht the HPO's Indie series and having been recognized as 2017's emerging artist in music by the Hamilton Arts Council, Bech is becoming known for her mixture of innovative writing, childlike wonder and grounded expression of her own anxiety, hope, and despair. She invites you to laugh, sing, or cry about it with her.
