Double Bill: Zoe Gilby and Alice Zawadzki

Presented in association with Jazz North East's Women Make Music series

Northern Rock Foundation Hall

Zoe Gilby with Paul Edis, Andy Champion and Adrian Tilbrook – ‘Pannonica’

North East singer Zoe Gilby has a growing reputation for singing a mix of standards, her own compositions and arrangements of more contemporary material. This new project features some of the North East’s most talented instrumentalists and draws on the work of one of her musical heroines, American singer Carmen McRae, who recorded memorable interpretations of Thelonious Monk’s music in the 1960’s, including some of his best known tunes such as ‘Blue Monk’, and ‘Pannonica’ (written in honour of the Jazz Baroness, the muse of bebop).

Alice Zawadzki with Alex Roth, Tom McCredie, Peter Lee and Jon Scott

Vocalist, violinist, songwriter/composer, Alice Zawadzki is making waves with music of rare originality, extending far beyond the jazz scene. Drawing together influences from her early exposure to New Orleans soul and gospel (including a stint as backing singer to Lillian Boutte) alongside classical training and an exploration of world and improvised music. Her debut album ‘China Lane’ travels from mediaeval Sephardic songs to indie rock, “all propelled in a voice of velvet suppleness and gutsy emotional power” (The Arts Desk).

“Uncategorisable, beautiful – a real force to be reckoned with” Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2
