Enjoy a slice of 50s Paris cafe life in this special celebration of the music of two French icons

 

Renowned singer Eve Loiseau returns to the Everyman Studio Theatre to pay tribute to the great chanteuse Edith Piaf and singer and poet George Brassens.

Eve will once again be backed by singer/guitarist Rod Wilson and friends, featuring accordion, double bass and more for this special event.

Brassens popularised French poetry through his simple, yet elegant melodies.  His songs were provocative and humoristic and included Le gorille and La mauvaise reputation, which are still revered today, 30 years after his death.

Piaf remains universally regarded as France’s most popular singer with songs such as La vie en rose and Non, je ne regrette rien, which appeal directly to the heart.
