A one-off collaboration between three extraordinary community choirs, with support from the phenomenal singer-songwriter Carrie Tree.
Hackney Harmony, Acland Burghley Harmony Singers and Zu Choir come together to form 'Voices Unite', bringing you an exciting array of songs to uplift your heart and feed your soul. All profits will go to WaterAid UK and the local charity 'Akwaaba' - a social centre for refugees, asylum seekers and other migrants, providing them a safe, welcoming and non-hierarchical space in which visitors and volunteers of all faiths and none can connect with one another and build a shared community.
UK singer/songwriter Carrie Tree has been travelling and performing with her music around the world for many years, playing across Europe, Africa, Australia and America, sharing songs of honesty, reflection and healing. Carrie touches a deep place in listeners with her thoughtful lyrics and soulful melodies, creating an intimate setting which opens hearts and brings people closer together. With a mesmerising voice and unique style, she accompanies herself with intricate guitar, diving deep into the heart of acoustic folk soul.
