Alkevan

Alkevan now consists of Alan, Kevin and Steve. With exceptional harmony singing, rhythmic guitar and bodhran, Kevin and Alan having been playing as Alkevan since 2012 and Alan Harvey has been a regular on the Midlands folk circuit for many years –  as a singer with the Harvey Band and Tanglefoot UK well before that.  Kevin joined Alan in 2012 as an outlet for his song writing catalogue. Their songs are heavily flavoured by all things Cornish; Kevin’s heritage!  Songs of the sea, songs of salt, songs of love, songs of mystery, murder and mischief.  Their first Album, “Honeycombed Heart” was released in 2017and featured Anne Bowden on cello, flute and whistle.  They will bring some new material to the festival this year. Anne has now left and has been replaced by session musician Steve Nevey on bass.
