Patti Smith and her band
Punk rock's poet laureate, Patti Smith ranks among the most influential female rock and rollers of all time. Ambitious, unconventional, and challenging, Smith's music was hailed as the most exciting fusion of rock and poetry since Bob Dylan's heyday. If that hybrid remained distinctly uncommercial for much of her career, it wasn't a statement against accessibility so much as the simple fact that Smith followed her own muse wherever it took her, from structured rock songs to free-form experimentalism, or even completely out of music at times. Her most avant-garde outings drew a sense of improvisation and interplay from free jazz, though they remained firmly rooted in noisy, primitive three-chord rock and roll.
Smith recently performed an acoustic show in the beautiful setting of Union Chapel and thrived off its intimate nature receiving five star reviews across the press. Her Serpentine Session is a unique opportunity to catch this influential, multi-talented and imaginative performer with her full band in a very special setting.
