NEWS FLASH – we are pleased to announce that their debut album ‘Za Górami’ will be released in September on ECM Records

We are extremely excited to be working in partnership with Sandy Hill Arts, to co-present three of the leading musicians on the UK’s contemporary music scene: ALICE ZAWADZKI, FRED THOMAS and MISHA MULLOV-ABBADO. This gig will take place in a completely weather-proof marquee, in the beautiful unique setting of Sandy Hill Arts, in the shadow of Dorset’s iconic Corfe Castle.

Though all three have worked together in other ensembles and occasionally on each other’s individual projects (including previous sold-out appearances by Alice and Misha at SoundCellar), this will be a rare opportunity to see them perform live as a trio, in what will be one of their first outings in support of the release of their debut album, coming out on the prestigious label ECM Records later this year.

Alice Zawadzki is an outstanding vocalist, violinist, pianist and songwriter and has featured on albums by a whole host of top artists, as well as releasing two super albums under her own name. Her debut album 2014’s ‘China Lane’ and her follow up 2019’s ‘Within You Is A World Of Spring’ have met with warm critical praise, with comments such as “a genuine original” The Guardian and “Zawadzki’s larynx is a supple, expressive, rousing delight… something of a phenomenon” MOJO Magazine

She has received numerous awards and nominations from prestigious bodies such as Jazz FM, Parliamentary Jazz Awards and the Royal Philharmonic Society in recognition of her immense talents.

Fred Thomas is regarded as one of the UK’s finest musicians, as well as a sought-after arranger and producer. His repertoire covers everything from UK and European folk, to jazz and to his critically acclaimed interpretations of the works of J.S. Bach.  He works regularly as Musical Director at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and teaches at Trinity Laban Conservatoire. Fred is an ECM artist and has collaborated with a whole host of performers ranging from Brian Eno, to Shabaka Hutchings, to Yo-Yo Ma and many others.

Misha Mullov-Abbado is one of the most in-demand bassists on the jazz circuit. In addition to leading his own ensembles and releasing three albums under his own name, he also regularly performs alongside his world famous classical violinist mother Viktoria Mullova. Like his two colleagues in this trio, Misha’s repertoire covers a whole gamut of musical genres, from popular music, to jazz, to his classical compositions for cello and full orchestra.

Alice Zawadzki: Voice, Violin
Fred Thomas: Piano, Drums
Misha Mullov-Abbado: Bass
