A special solo-acoustic performance from singer and harpist Rachel Newton, beneath Michael Pendry’s stunning Les Colombes (Doves) installation. Rachel’s music draws on poems and ballads that are hundreds of years old, working them into her contemporary compositional style to create a rich sound that is ambitious, original and unique, earning her a SAY Award 2021 shortlist nomination for her critically acclaimed album ‘To The Awe’.
In addition to her solo work, Rachel is a skilled collaborator and founder member of The Shee, The Furrow Collective and The Lost Words: Spell Songs.
To The Awe, Rachel’s ambitious new album, places women at the centre of the narrative, at various stages of life and often marking a coming of age and an acquisition of power. The record is a tribute to the women who have inspired Rachel and is influenced by her recent work around the representation of women in the music industry.
