Mercury-nominated and Worldwide FM Lifetime Achievement Award winner Carleen Anderson takes to the Barbican stage to present Cage Street Memorial. Described by Anderson as a “tribal opera”, poetry and songs chronicle over a century of Anderson’s own family heritage, reflecting on multi-culturalism and the celebration of perseverance against the odds.
Original songs composed and arranged by Anderson drawn from jazz and soul, gospel and chamber music are enhanced by a backdrop of evocative visual images with Carleen on voice, piano and digital harmonizer complemented by an expert quartet led by the critically acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Orphy Robinson (also appearing at the Barbican as part of the EFG London Jazz Festival on Friday 10 November 2017.)
This performance on 20 January 2018 of songs from the soundtrack album titled Cage Street Memorial – The Pilgrimage (Freestyle Records, 2016), is one-third part of a trilogy series also consisting of a theatrical production currently in development and a British Library registered book Cage Street Memorial - The Chapel of Mirrors. Carleen Anderson’s Cage Street Memorial project is supported by Arts Council England and PRS for Music Foundation.
Produced by the Barbican in association with Serious
