25/06 – Storyhouse, Chester
Musically combining the past and the present, singer and harpist RACHEL NEWTON incorporates ancient poems and ballads into her contemporary sounds and compositions, creating a rich and experimental melodic folklore. In June, Newton presents her most recent album To The Awe at Storyhouse, an auditory exploration of the female experience throughout history. The record is a tribute to the women who have inspired Newton throughout her life and reflects her recent work around the representation of women in the music industry. Pieced together throughout lockdown, with vocals recorded in Newton’s bedroom wardrobe, To The Awe will finally receive the audience it deserves.
