The Euro Sawchestra

The Euro Sawchestra was a special event I organised for Sheffield City Council to celebrate 100 years of stainless steel.  I brought together musical saw artists  from across Europe, with one special guest from China.   The members of the group included Caroline Watsham, Thomas Tschernich, Edgar Guerreiro, Andi Fitzner, Henry Dagg, Ken Bainbridge, Qiu Hanquan and  myself.


The group each took turns to perform their preferred style of music and  then this was followed by playing joint numbers in harmony that included Yesterday & Ode to Joy.





It was a brilliant event appreciated by several thousand shoppers that passed through the performance area within the Winter Gardens in Sheffield.

In 2015 three of the sawchestra members met up in York and performed for   BBC Radio York’s Johnathon Cowap’s show.


If you are looking for a similar event I would be very happy to put something together, but please note this requires a lot of planning, as in this case saw players came from all over the globe to take part.
