Vesper Sky is a stunning and unique collection of songs and poems, written and performed by Stewart Henderson, Yvonne Lyon and Carol Henderson.
 
Singer/songwriter YVONNE LYON has been significantly influenced by Stewart's poems and songs over many years. This new collaboration has allowed her the opportunity to develop her own craft with material co-written with Stewart and also to respond to various poems with improvised piano accompaniment. Having supported Eddi Reader, performed with Beth Nielsen Chapman and co-written with Boo Hewerdine, Yvonne continues to establish herself as an artist of considerable significance.
