Gwyneth Herbert is a strikingly original performer, award-winning composer
and lyricist and versatile musical adventurer who continues to redefine and
challenge expectations. Drawing on influences from the worlds of jazz, folk,
contemporary classical music and storytelling her 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 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. Catch some of these new songs tonight.
