Steve Mason & Ensemble was  a collaboration for

Festival No. 6 in 2014. The 30 min final set

comprised 5 solo tracks and 1 rarely played Beta

Band song. The intimate gig was so popular it

created queues all the way down to Portmeirion

Hotel overlooking the estuary.

"This beautiful, tiny venue also hosts collaborations

with Joe Duddell’s classical No. 6 Ensemble and

singers including Steve Mason and Nadine Shah. As

strings soar at the mental disquiet of Mason’s Dr.

Baker, sunlight streams through the windows behind

him. William-Ellis hoped his creation, Portmeirion,

would remind people how life can be lived better

with beauty. No. 6 honours that dream."

Meet The Humans

Joe went on to arrange and record brass and string
