This fictional story of a talented but troubled young horn player stars Anna Russell-Martin, with a sonorous score recorded by a bespoke band including principal players from Black Dyke, Grimethorpe, Fairey and Brighouse, and featuring BBC Young Musician of the Year, Sheona White as “the voice of Keli” on tenor horn.

Inspired by the resilient, creative individuals he has met, he’s produced  a three-part BBC documentary, LOVE, SPIT AND VALVE OIL, a new piece of music Split The Air and this  Audio Drama,Keli, commissioned by The Lyceum and created with Lyceum associate artist Wils Wilson with whom Martin made last year's acclaimed audio drama The Portal.
