Alice Zawadzki & Fred Thomas

Part of The Pumphouse
In a sumptuous yet left-field programme, Alice Zawadzki and Fred Thomas continue a partnership that draws upon a shared love of the more unusual side of jazz, Mediterranean ballads, classical art songs and original composition.
Vocalist-violinist Zawadzki’s ‘voice of velvet suppleness and gutsy emotional power’ (The Arts Desk) interweaves with Thomas’ ‘beautifully ruminative’ (Gramophone Magazine) piano, double bass and percussion, to create intimate, luminous chamber music.

'Extreme sensitivity to colour and nuance….Fred Thomas is brilliant'
BBC Music Magazine
'With her glacial, folksy vocals and puckish fiddle, Alice Zawadzki would be notable enough. Add her compositional range and whimsical hyper-creativity and she becomes something of a phenomenon.'
