Event Description

With her characteristic charm, exquisite musicianship and powerful vocals, chanteuse Edie DaPonte brings Edith Piaf to life for an unforgettable evening of music! Edith Piaf, beloved by millions, gave her last performance at the Paris Olympia in 1963. Her unique voice and passion evoke a time and place for listeners, of Europe before and after the war, and of a life filled with tragedy and endurance. In homage, Edie Daponte presents Under Paris Skies – La Musique d’Edith Piaf; a night of music and entertainment inspired by Paris. Widely regarded as France's national chanteuse, Edie will perform many of Piaf’s soulful and emotional numbers with a full live-band. "Non Je Ne Regrette Rien", "La Vie en Rose", "Sous le Ciel de Paris", "Milord", and many more, interwoven with Edie’s engaging style of audience-interaction, and interpretation of the French numbers. She’ll also be mixing in some of Edith Piaf’s English songs and a few more that fit alongside Piaf’s oeuvre – inspired by a recent trip to Paris.

Channelling Piaf, with her rich timbre and captivating stage presence, Edie aims for a completely authentic experience and her experienced band helps create the atmosphere of an intimate Parisian theatre. Joining Edie are long-time collaborator Joey Smith on bass, and Vancouver Island favourites Karel Roessingh on piano, Jonathan Eng on drums and filling the important role of accordionist, Aaron Watson. These talented musicians all have long careers in the B.C. jazz scene.
