Recalling her own experience of living in Paris, Louise takes the audience out for a night to the jazz bars of France’s capital in this evocative show. Accompanied by some of Adelaide’s finest musicians including Mark Ferguson on piano, Julian Ferraretto on violin, John Aué on double bass and Joshua Baldwin on drums, Louise performs a wonderful selection of twentieth-century French songs by artists such as Fréhel, Lucienne Boyer, Edith Piaf, Léo Ferré, Georges Brassens, Boris Vian, Juliette Gréco, Yves Montand, Barbara, Serge Gainsbourg, Charles Aznavour and more.
If you’re wondering the streets or home watching TV Feeling bored, undecided, full of melancholy Grab your coat, get your hat, turn that sadness to glee Come and join our French party at the mighty Wheaty You won’t hear a bar of Lennon or McCartney But your hearts will be filled with a French melody We will step back in history, remembering things past All things French should I say, as it is Bastille Day When the French all rose up, kicked the crown, let him down Wasn’t fun for King Louis, but we’ll have a blast!
