Tuned In London presents Silvia Balducci and Adam Beattie

Tuned In London presents Silvia Balducci and Adam Beattie on Saturday 16th July, 7.30pm at City Hope Church, 121 Drummond Rd, Bermondsey.

This is a Salter Centenary event for Ada Salter's Birthday

One hundred years ago Ada and Alfred Salter were transforming the environmental and social conditions of the poorest in Rotherhithe and Bermondsey. Singer songwriters Adam Beattie, with his “A Song of One Hundred Years”, and Silvia Balducci, with her passion for songs about the working conditions and human rights of the poorest, are both invited for the occasion.

Rome-born, London-based Silvia is a super talented, passionate musician. Guitar in hand, she has collaborated with many international artists, and has made it her mission to keep alive the New Chilean Song Movement. Her two albums dedicated to the work of authors such as Victor Jara and Violeta Parra are considered to be some of the best tributes in existence.

Scottish born Adam Beattie has become a celebrated musician of the London scene with 5 self-penned albums to his name. Drawing on Scottish folk music, his years of collaboration and travel, his melodies and lyrics transport us with his “carefully crafted, gently affecting songwriting" (BBC Radio Scotland) and “uplifting reveries of love and loss through smoky jazz and romantic balladry” (Mojo Magazine). One hundred years since Ada Salter became Mayor of Bermondsey, as we navigate amidst a climate emergency, a housing crisis and a global pandemic, her passions for environment, housing and public health show she was a fore-runner for today's leading activists

Tickets are available on the Tuned In London website and also via Billetto.
