Dear friends! On May 27, the last Saturday of spring, we will play a solo concert for you. We haven’t played solo gigs for almost three years, and we decided it was finally time. We have accumulated a lot of music, a lot of finds scattered around the festivals at which we have been appearing sporadically lately, but we want to put it all together… And of course there will be surprises;)
We are waiting for you at 21:00, on Saturday, May 27, at the Bunker47 club at Leningradsky Prospekt 47, p. 3. Join the concert meeting and follow the news! Tickets (from 500 rubles) and table reservations are already available.
And, well, we are waiting for the meeting, we will do everything to make it great!
Written a long time ago, inspired by the marvelous Henry W. Longfellow’s poem, the song ‘Excelsior!’ was arranged and recorded in August – December 2021 and mixed in 2022.
And we believe that times of disquiet and grief will pass and the one whose soul is aspiring heavenward will overcome and reach the heights with far clear skies, absolute splendor and blessedness. ‘Higher, onward and upward’, this is the translation of the word ‘excelsior’ from Latin.
The song is presented in two versions – the English version with the original poem and the Russian version translated by Elena Kanevskaya.
Written and arranged by Elena Kanevskaya
Words by Henry W. Longfellow
Elena Kanevskaya: vocal, keyboards, recorder, kalimba
Tatyana Kanevskaya: acoustic guitar
Mixed by Dmitry Shtatnov
Mastered by Fergal Davis

On Sunday, October 18, EW will perform in the art space of the music store “Dom Kultury”. The program is timed to the release of the album “Homeless Soul”, but we will play songs from previous albums as well. It will be a chamber event, with percussion for a drum kit. Perhaps we haven’t played like this yet. We are looking forward to meeting you, and we really want to believe that the pandemic will not prevent this!
