THIS SHOW WAS ORIGINALLY SCHEDULED FOR 20 DECEMBER BUT WAS POSTPONED DUE TO TIER 4 RESTRICTIONS.
A strikingly original performer and composer, Gwyneth Herbert has been hailed as one the most imaginative and idiosyncratic artists of her generation. Since her first album “Bittersweet and Blue” she has produced a huge canon of work, including her last album, "Letters I Haven’t Written", which was accompanied by an ambitious live show exploring the struggle for connection through film, storytelling and song. And not content with being one of the finest singer/songwriters in the country (really) She is the co-creator of six musicals, including Bristol Old Vic’s record-breaking production of “A Christmas Carol” with Tom Morris and Lee Lyford, which – after a sell-out run – saw her donning her red velvet trouser suit and wig for a second year in a row. Other composition work has involved major commissions from the London Sinfonietta, Mahogany Opera Group, Roman River Festival, Snape Maltings, and conducting her own film score at the BFI.
For this one-off “Christmas Letters Special” packed full of treats, Gwynnie invites YOU to be an integral part of making it all happen. From choosing a “stocking thriller” with your mates from the Herbert Jukebox online, to commissioning your Dad’s favourite song as a festive surprise, to speed-dialling your Gran with a gwyn-a-gram from the stage - tonight is all about the music and the people that we love. It has been one helluva year - so pour yourself a drink, pull up a sofa and get ready to sing yourself into the future… in a truly Gwynteractive gig experience! Visit Gwyn's IndieGogo page for all the options and we hope to see you in the Club or on the stream.
