Gwyneth brings her full 5-piece band to Hastings for the first time, with visuals from acclaimed video artist Will Duke (Royal Shakespeare Company, Theatre de Complicite), in an exclusive preview of her forthcoming album and touring project, Letters I Haven’t Written. Gwyneth 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 6 albums to date on major, independent and self-owned labels (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 year for Gwyneth has seen a nationwide festival tour of Canada and the USA; a six week 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 formally inventive 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. This is one of only 3 UK preview performances of the show planned before its official launch next year - don’t miss it! ★★★★★ "A remarkably gifted talent" - The Guardian "Her voice is a thing of beauty" - The Times ★★★★★ "Super talented" - The Telegraph http://gwynethherbert.com/ https://www.facebook.com/gwynethherbert https://twitter.com/gwynethherbert https://www.instagram.com/gwyneth_herbert/
