Steel Harmony worked with Turner Prize winning artist, Jeremy Deller, on the Manchester International Festival event, ‘ ‘Procession’, held in July 2009, performing songs by Joy Division and the Buzzcocks. Steel pans form the heart of the band, accompanied by a strong rhythm section which produces a rich, heavy sound. Fusion is their inspiration; spicing up arrangements in their own inimitable style, whilst demonstrating the versatility of the pans. No genre or style of music is out of bounds – Steel Harmony aim to surprise and leave you wanting more.    1:42:48 (Pop‑up)
