Event Description

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 channels Piaf with her rich timbre and captivating stage presence. Edie will perform many of Piaf’s soulful and emotional numbers and her experienced full live band help create the atmosphere of an intimate Parisian theatre.

Non Je Ne Regrette Rien; La Vie En Rose; Sous Le Ciel de Paris; Milord and many more in both French and English as well as songs that fit alongside Piaf’s oeuvre. Joining Edie are long-time collaborator, Joey Smith on bass and Vancouver Island favourites, Karel Roessingh on piano, Aaron Watson on accordion and guitar and Jonathan Eng on percussion.

Expect surprise numbers and dramatic costume changes. Come along and feel yourself sink under the spell of the Parisian streets and the sounds they inspire.
