ALL SAINTS SESSIONS
An innovative music and poetry performance series conceived and performed by Cheryl and musician/sound artist Alastair Gavin and their guests in a beautiful candlelit church setting in Edmonton, North London.
The Sessions take place every two months and feature a changing line up, with a guest poet and musician collaborating with Cheryl and Alastair to create a special one-off performance for that evening.
With special lighting, electronics and a surround sound speaker system, the meeting place of spoken word and music; voice and soundscape; poetry and song is opened up and explored to create something uniquely atmospheric, immersive and memorable.
