Orcadian folk singer, Ivan Drever, will be performing at Ardross Hall from his extensive traditional repertoire and virtuoso guitar playing.
With a career spanning over four decades, Ivan has released some 15 solo albums, and is famed not only for his solo work, but duo partnerships with Duncan Chilsholm, and Ian Cooper (known collectively as _The Knowe O’Deil_), amongst others, as well as eight years fronting Celtic rock band _Wolfstone_, in the 1990s.
Originally from Sanday, one of Orkney’s north isles, Ivan is now resident in Norway, and regularly tours Scandinavia, the USA and the UK.
Ivan’s songs and tunes are renowned the world over, with one of his collaborative works,_ Heart & Sou_l, co-written with Duncan Chisholm, featuring in the Robin Williams film, _Good Will Hunting_. He also penned one of Orkney’s best known folk songs, _Orkney Anthem_ (with the chorus; “Isles ne’er forgotten…”). Ivan continues to produce new material and perform live. The Orcadian’s new 12-track album, _Decade_, is the latest instalment in a glowing, stylish career. Ivan said: “_Decade_ was recorded in Andy Harrison’s hoose in Kristiandsand, South Norway."
Ivan mixes folk with some rock and roll sounds and has a compelling deep bass voice that he beautifully accompanies with his versatile guitar playing.
