Spotlight On Female Songwriters
Part of a three-day Guildhall School of Music & Drama Jazz Department showcase featuring current students, alumni and staff members, showcasing emerging talent and new and established voices from Guildhall's thriving and eclectic jazz department.
Fini Bearman, Emma Smith, Natalie Williams and Cherise explore songs by their favourite female songwriters, as well as originals. Arranged and conducted by Ryan MacKenzie, with special guests Tom Walsh and Nikki Iles.
A performance by ImPossibilities will open the concert – a Guildhall band which creates a sonic amalgam of free jazz, spiritual sounds, roots and folkloric music, hip-hop, nu-soul, spoken word, groove and abstraction.
