Promoting Contemporary Jazz in Northamptonshire
Alice Zawadzki is a vocalist, violinist, songwriter and composer based in London. Her work as a performer, collaborator, composer and speaker, has seen her gain considerable repute as a distinctive and individual presence on the creative European music scene. Anglo-Polish Aliceâ€™s rich musical background and â€œwhimsical hyper-creativityâ€ (MOJO Magazine) converge into artistry which draws upon her early exposure to New Orleans jazz and gospel with the legendary Lillian BouttÃ©, an extensive classical training as a violinist, and a continuous exploration of improvisation, poetry, and folk music from diverse traditions, â€œall propelled in a voice of velvet suppleness and gutsy emotional powerâ€ (The Arts Desk). She performs extensively as both a soloist and as a collaborator, with headline performances at most of the major UK alternative and jazz venues and festivals, including the Royal Albert Hall, Ronnie Scottâ€™s, the London Jazz Festival, the Vortex, Celtic Connections, and internationally at festivals from Taipei International Jazz Festival (Taiwan) to Coventry Calling (Massachusetts, USA) to SÅ±dtirol Jazz Festival (Italy), and more. She also performs and collaborates at underground venues in the London scene and on unexpected platforms, with a keenness to nourish music at itâ€™s roots.
