Encore - Maggi Stratford
Tuesday 24th September 2019
Tuesday Night Live: “ENCORE! is chuffed to be back at Heart.
Come and celebrate the onset of autumn with a belle soirée of Gallic passion conjured up through the chansons of the best-loved French poet-singer-songwriters: Brel, Moustaki, Brassens, Piaf, Barbara et al.
We’ll bring you both familiar and new tunes, including some from my favourite contemporary chansonnière Juliette Noureddine.
Interwoven with stories and explanations about the artists and their work, these songs, sung in French, have all the power to transport and touch us to the core.
We are singer Maggi Stratford – “Fabulous to hear an English woman singing these masterpieces of French Chansons so perfectly!”
and brilliant York-based musician Daniel Bowater on piano, accordion and guitar.”
Suggested donations of £3-£5, but no one turned away for lack of funds.
