A remarkably gifted talent"

The Guardian

Among a number of UK and European headline shows, the past few months for Gwyneth have seen a nationwide festival tour of Canada and the USA; a six week run voicing the title role in the Bristol Old Vic theatre’s hugely successful production of The Snow Queen (for which she was also composer, lyricist and musical director); and a collaborative concert performing her own work with the London Sinfonietta to a sold out Kings Place, London.

Alongside music from past albums, tonight Gwyneth will be performing songs from her forthcoming album and touring project Letters I Haven’t Written: a musical, narrative and visual journey exploring the lost art of letter writing. Through blots of heartbreak, strokes of curiosity and scribbles of whimsy, the show will unearth the emotional complexities of putting pen to paper, and, in a climate of status updates and limited characters, seek to find a more meaningful dialogue with the world.
