05.05.17 and 06.05.17 Singing with Nightingales

The Nest Collective says: “Come to the forest, sit by the fireside and listen to intoxicating song, as some of the finest musicians in the land duet with the rare and sweet song of the nightingale. Immerse yourself in the folklore and ways of our native birds, dine on a gourmet, backwoods feast with fine cheer, woodsmoke and hearty stories of the land and the songs sprung from it. Savour the music of world renowned guest artists from folk, classical, world music and jazz arenas in the most unusual and sublime of concerts. Join us in a rare and thrilling journey as darkness falls upon the springtime woodlands of southern England.”

I was honoured to take part in this project last year, and my performance with Sam Lee and a beautiful nightingale was recorded for BBC Radio 3, which you can hear here.

 21.05.17 Bath Festival, Masonic Hall @ Old Theatre Royal

Bath Festival says: “Jamie Cullum called Alice Zawadzki ‘beautiful, uncategorisable – a real force to be reckoned with’. Her dramatic voice, warm humour and creative enthusiasm have left critics comparing her to Björk and Tori Amos. For this Bath Festival commission, she’s asked legendary producer Fred Thomas and bassist Misha Mullov-Abbado to join her onstage.”

16.09.16 Songs to the Moon! Glengall Wharf Garden, London, UK

Presented by the Nest Collective Campfire Club

“In time-honoured fashion we will gather around roaring blazes enveloped in music and entertainment. High spirits will be maintained with good ol’ sing-a-longs, storytelling, special guests and who knows what else. Every fire will be a unique event with a magic concoction of spontaneity, rare talents and the unknown, all drenched in the sepia tones of firelight and tinged with wooded aromas. Sitting somewhere between the pith and pathos of folkloric music, classical lyricism and spacious jazz, the latest project from celebrated vocalist-violinist Alice Zawadzki presents luminous settings of songs inspired by mankind’s age-old fascination with the moon. Brought to life by the multi-hued, kaleidoscopic sounds of guitarist Alex Roth, and the profound sonority of Alice Purton’s cello, their radiant original songs and unique settings of lunar-themed material are at once as solacing as they are quixotic, and represent chamber jazz at it’s most effervescent and romantic.” The Nest Collective
