Royal Docks Originals
Live at the Silver Building: Alice Zawadzki
Singer and violinist Alice Zawadzki shares the stories of her grandfather, who drew comic strips for a living while haunting the docks of London and sketching the working lives of the people he saw. These pictures and their stories are the starting point for this new show about families and the tales they tell.
Zawadzki draws influences from New Orleans soul and gospel, a classical training, and an exploration of world and improvised music, putting storytelling at the heart of her performances. Jamie Cullum called her “uncategorisable, beautiful - a real force to be reckoned with” and The Guardian hailed her as “a genuine original”.
The series Live at the Silver Building is three nights of free music programmed by renowned creative producers, Serious. The other concerts will see performances from guitarist Justin Adams and gimbri player Mohamed Errebbaa and singer-songwriter and guitarist Rosie Frater-Taylor. Plus, don’t miss Soho Radio’s Max Reinhardt’s sessions at the Good Hotel bar, inviting musicians such as Camilla George and Arun Ghosh to join him as he blends beats and live music.
