The Beatty Heritage House Society will host a special evening of classical and Christmas music by returning favourite performers, KEVLEX on Sun.,Dec. 3 at 7 p.m. Kick off your Christmas season with festive lights, celebratory music and even seasonal snacks, in warm vintage style.

Based in Seattle, Washington, this talented musical pairing includes Kevin Lambert on classical guitar and Alexis Sebring on violin. The pair strives to channel the traditional excellence of classical music, while imparting original and refreshing transcriptions and performances. Their material varies widely between ancient and folk traditional music, Renaissance and Baroque, classical and modern music – all uniquely transcribed by the musicians for violin and guitar, a typically underutilised pairing. The result is an intimate and rich sound, laced with intricacy and familiar lyricism.

Kevin has been playing guitar for two decades. Growing up in Winfield, Alberta he began his training with local musician, Edwin Erickson, then continued with widely known guitarist, Ben Tobiasson. While he was attending a music camp in Montana, Kevin’s playing caught the ear of Christopher Parkening, one of the world’s preeminent virtuosos of the classical guitar. He invited Kevin to study with him at Pepperdine University, which Kevin did for three years. He met Alexis within the music program there and a relationship bloomed into marriage. Alexis graduated from Pepperdine in 2011. She has been playing the violin since the age of eight, including with the Santa Monica Symphony.

After recently to moving the Pacific Northwest they’ve forged a partnership centred on music and performance, putting into action the aim to share music wherever they go. Alexis and Kevin have toured Western United States, Canada, and Scandinavia; Rimbey is surely fortunate to have the opportunity to hear this calibre of musician perform in an intimate house concert setting.
