Show

Christine Bovill performs PIAF at The Crazy Coqs

From 04/04/2014 at 20:00 to 05/04/2014 at 20:00



No glamour. No gimmicks. No pretence. Nothing but a voice singing of life’s triumphs and tragedies. PIAF is a powerful musical homage to one of France’s most endearing icons, celebrating some of her best known songs, threaded with Piaf’s story, and Christine’s own remarkable journey in the world of chanson. She takes her audience through tragic love stories such as L'Accordeoniste and L'Hymne a L'Amour, lighter numbers such as Je N'en Connais Pas La Fin and the classics for which Piaf is best known.

An award-winning songwriter in her own right, who has built her reputation on her interpretation of classic 20th century songs, Bovill has toured throughout Europe with her self-penned homage to the Little Sparrow. During her sold out run at the famous Spiegeltent at last year's Edinburgh Festival, Bovill realised a lifelong dream when she shared the stage with Charles Dumont, great friend of Piaf and most famously, composer of Non, Je ne Regrette Rien. They performed several songs together to close the show.
