Hazel Iris 'Nine Sisters' Album Launch on Thursday 25th October 2018

Eccentric storytelling singer-songwriter Hazel Iris celebrates the release of her first full-length album, 'Nine Sisters', at one of London’s most historic landmarks, St. Bartholomew-the-Great at Smithfield.

This event is closer to a festival of arts rather than an ordinary launch gig, as we have some of the most brilliant and innovative artists on the bill, with each performance taking place in a different space of the church!

Internationally acclaimed concert pianist Jayson Gillham (Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Melbourne Symphony) and dramatic soprano Katrina Sheppeard (English National Opera, Sydney Opera House) join forces to open proceedings with Richard Strauss’s final and most haunting song cycle, 'Vier letzte Lieder'.

With hammered dulcimer, violin and vocals, Kate Arnold Music fronts the 'punk baroque' project Fear of the Forest and has worked with Lisa Knapp, Doudou Cissoko, Rose McDowall and Daemonia Nymphe. She performs an unplugged set influenced by her interests in folk, medieval and Middle Eastern music.

And finally, Hazel Iris introduces her debut full-length album, 'Nine Sisters'. Fusing together elements of alt-folk, Lieder and jazz, she is supported by a stellar ensemble including:

- celebrated conductor Jessica Cottis (Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, Sydney Symphony Orchestra)
- on horn, classical & jazz harpist Tara Minton
- jazz drummer Fred Harper
- double-bassist Twm Dylan
- composer/cellist Matt Constantine Music
- classical accordionist Aine McLoughlin
- violinist Aurora del Rio
- guitarist Federico Accardo

With theatrical elements choreographed by Alicia Britt of Wondering HandsPuppet Theatre, who is designing puppets especially for the evening, it will be a night to remember!
