Samantha Whates presents: Together&   Apart

Singer and songwriter Samantha Whates presents a line-up of artists exploring the highly topical theme of borders – togetherness and separation, camaraderie and isolation. Samantha will join all the artists’ performances for a song.

The Rail Abandon met between rain storms in a courtyard in the North Ghanaian town of Kalba. They formed a musical bond after just a few notes and spent just three days recording their album. Sonny took his new-found friend’s songs back to London for some of his favourite musicians to bring his ideas to life, before returning to Ghana so that Isaac could do the same with his. The resulting album, Kalba, includes contributions from Seb Rochford, Leafcutter John, Mark Lockheart, Laura Jurd, Elliot Galvin, Raph Clarkson, Garance Louis and more.




Alexander’s Festival Hall have been specialising in a kind of careworn English balladry, cocktailed with dashes of unashamed pop for a while now. Expect darkly comic stories and brighter tunes from the forthcoming new album and accompanying book of stories ‘Not From Above!’


British-Canadian singer-songwriter Fiona Bevan will be performing a song written especially for the occasion, which will also feature Samantha Whates. With a sweet, fiery voice and a soulful folk-pop sound, the Guardian described Fiona’s songs as “startling odysseys that suggest Erykah Badu, Joanna Newsom and Kate Bush spine-tinglingly joined.”


Samantha Whates will perform songs from her Waiting Rooms album. Recorded entirely on location in all different kinds of waiting rooms, these songs were recorded live, often in one take, in some unique spaces, allowing the atmosphere and resonance of each space to be captured. Music is an unfamiliar thing in many of these spaces and each room is imbued with the stories and experiences of everyone who has passed through it. The aim is to engage with the audience about their experiences in these spaces and bring it all together so that their own stories can be related to the songs.
