Ayanna Witter-Johnson

Sat 8 Sep 9pm

Tickets £8.00

Britten Studio

Part of Festival of New

Saturday 8 September 2018 - 9.00pm

Road Runner

Singer, songwriter, cellist, arranger, composer… Ayanna’s open-hearted and eclectic sets are difficult to pigeon-hole and very difficult to forget.

Participation in the London Symphony Orchestra’s young composer scheme and a MOBO-nomination somehow sit comfortably side by side on an already-impressive roster of achievements. Her strikingly original songs blend soulful vocals, an R&B sensibility and uncompromising lyrics, while her classical trained cello playing lends intimacy and layered intricacy to her music. This show features brand new material from a rare new talent as well as songs she wrote as an Esmée Fairbairn Foundation Open Space artist here at Snape.

‘… a huge talent … like a young Cassandra Wilson would have sounded if she also happened to be a fine cellist.’
