Award winning chanteuse, Christine Bovill has built her reputation on the massively successful sell-out show, Piaf.
In Christine Bovill’s Paris, an award-winning 5-star hit at the 2016 and 2017 Edinburgh Fringe, she beckons you back to the Golden Age of French Song; a demi-monde of heroes and outcasts, cynics and bruised romantics.
No gimmicks. No pretence. Nothing but a voice – smoky, evocative and emotive - singing of life’s triumphs and tragedies. With drama, pathos and pizzazz, the show casts a sepia-tinged spotlight on the songs and stories of Jacques Brel, Edith Piaf, Barbara, Juliet Greco, Charles Aznavour and more…
Come and be transported into a Parisian-scented twilight world of song.
Christine will be joined tonight by Charlie Stewart on double bass and fiddle. Charlie was Young Traditional Musician of the Year (BBC Radio Scotland), 2017.
Presented by The Queen’s Hall
