Alice Zawadzki, Alex Roth, Shirley Smart at Jazz At The Lescar Series at The Lescar Hotel
Unmissable, unique, unclassifiable music. Three of the UK's most acclaimed musicians join us, bringing energy and virtuosity to some of the most romantic and passionate songs from Spain, including ancient Sephardic ballads, Galician folk songs and settings of the poetry of Lorca. Alice's voice is as supple as her violin playing is strongly lyrical, Shirley's cello playing is emotive and virtuosic, and Alex's electric guitar brings mystery, subtlety and space. This will be perfect in the intimacy of the Lescar backroom.
"She is a genuine original with a pure, pealing voice that can darken into brooding low tones, and twist with the flexibility and harmonic awareness of a jazz singer. She is also a composer of gliding, melodically unorthodox tunes that connect to contemporary classical music as much as jazz or pop, and an expressive lyricist." THE GUARDIAN
