After their sell-out ★★★★★ 2019 Adelaide Fringe season and album launch of ‘A Night in Paris’ Adelaide chanteuse Louise Blackwell is back with her all-star Adelaide band The French Set featuring Mark Ferguson on piano, Julian Ferraretto on violin, John Aué on bass and Josh Baldwin on drums. Together they will present a brand new show ‘From Paris with Love’ and once again take the audience into the world of the ‘chanson française’ with beautiful arrangements of songs written or sung by a variety of French artists. They will also pay homage to Paris as a city that has always loved jazz and other musical styles and welcomed many singers from the other side of the Atlantic, performing a few jazz and Brazilian numbers to add to the magic!
Adelaide chanteuse, Louise Blackwell, and the French Set will transport you to Paris with their award-winning hit show, A Night in Paris.
Accompanied by a four-piece band featuring some of Adelaide’s finest musicians (including Mark Simeon Ferguson on piano, Julian Ferraretto on violin, John Aué on double bass and Joshua Baldwin on drums), Louise takes the audience on a night out in Paris with a wonderful selection of twentieth-century French songs by artists such as Fréhel, Lucienne Boyer, Edith Piaf, Leo Ferré, Georges Brassens, Boris Vian, Juliette Greco, Yves Montand, Barbara, Serge Gainsbourg, Charles Aznavour and more.
The French Set, which won an Adelaide Fringe weekly music award, is a formidable French treat that is sure to delight!
