Following her sold-out show earlier this year, Gwyneth Herbert returns to Live At Zédel to give two exclusive full band preview performances of her much anticipated forthcoming album and touring project, Letters I Haven't Written.
Herbert is an award-winning composer and lyricist, vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and record producer. Drawing on influences from the worlds of jazz, folk, contemporary classical music and storytelling, she has released six albums to date (including the first Blue Note UK release in 30 years) and toured across the world with her band.
Among a number of UK and European headline shows, the past few months for Herbert have seen a nationwide festival tour of Canada and the USA; a run voicing the title role in the Bristol Old Vic theatre's hugely successful production of The Snow Queen (for which she was also composer, lyricist and musical director); and a collaborative concert performing her own work with the London Sinfonietta to a sold out Kings Place, London.
New project Letters I Haven't Written is a musical, narrative and visual journey exploring the lost art of letter writing. Through blots of heartbreak, strokes of curiosity and scribbles of whimsy, the show unearths the emotional complexities of putting pen to paper, and, in a climate of status updates and limited characters, seeks to find a more meaningful dialogue with the world.
These are the only London performances of the complete show planned before its official launch next year - don't miss out!
