Following last year's hugely successful North America tour, strikingly original performer, award-winning composer and lyricist and musical adventurer Gwyneth Herbert brings her acclaimed trio show to Crazy Coqs.
With one foot in the jazz world and the other somewhere in the future, Gwyneth has released 6 critically-acclaimed albums (including the first UK Blue Note release in 30 years), toured across the world and shared stages with Boy George, Amy Winehouse and John Cooper Clarke.
She has also presented for BBC Radio 3 and 4; co-created four musicals and a feature-length art film; opened the London and Montreal Jazz Festivals and her own film score at the British Film Institute; and had her arrangement of a Swahili folk-song performed by 100,000 children at once.
In this unique multi-instrumental performance, expect tales of wild sea-drenched sirens, jaded seaside hotels, East End vagrants, loves and losses… and the occasional Swahili singalong.
