A celebration of Edith Piaf in 2015 on the 100th anniversary of her birth, October 17
Eve Loiseau sings the songs of Edith Piaf, with Fiona Barrow, violin + Edward Jay, accordion.
Edith Piaf has become synonymous with French Cabaret of the 1940s & 50s and remains France’s most popular singer. Piaf’s life was the stuff of legend, from her dramatic rise from Paris street urchin to star of international renown. Her life, however, was anything but ‘La vie en rose’. In the centenary year of Piaf’s birth, this powerful celebration comes from a company whose credentials include Kneehigh Theatre and Canteve Vocale. This acclaimed show has played over 100 venues & festivals around the UK & abroad.
