Hagglers Corner are delighted to be welcoming singer songwriter Philippa Zawe to their Courtyard this October, fresh off performing at festivals across the UK over the summer!
Philippa Zawe is a Yorkshire based singer-songwriter. She is of Ugandan heritage and her songwriting is inspired by the rich stories that are told around her and lie within her. Her songs are rooted in the genre of Folk, with an infusion of Soul.
Her inspirations vary from the likes of Terry Callier to Joan Armatrading, Nick Drake to Laura Marling. Her music has been described as “audio self care at it’s finest” (Two Story Melody, 2018).
In September 2017 Philippa Zawe released her debut EP Road of Hope; a tale of loss, grief and hope found along the way. Shortly after that in May 2018 Zawe then released a full band EP titled Disadvantaged.
2020, a year of ups and downs, Philippa Zawe took us on an introspective journey full of hope and contradictions through her releases Dark Am I, Yet Lovely and Lay It All Down. In March of this year, she released her new EP, Shudder pt.1.
Philippa Zawe has played at festivals this year such as Greenbelt Festival, Tramlines, and Moseley Folk & Arts Festival. She’s due to play Manchester Folk Festival later this year.
Set to be a really special and intimate performance- ook your table to make sure you don’t miss out- see more info here: https://reservation.carbonaraapp.com/United-Kingdom/Sheffield/Hagglers-Corner
