With her characteristic charm, exquisite musicianship and powerful vocals, award-winning singer Edie DaPonte brings to life Edith Piaf – widely regarded as France's national chanteuse – for an unforgettable evening of music!

Edie will perform many of Edith Piaf's soulful and emotional numbers like Non Je Ne Regrette Rien, La Vie en Rose, Sous le Ciel de Paris, Milord and many more, interwoven with her engaging style of audience-interaction, and interpretation of the French numbers. She'll also be mixing in some of Piaf's English songs and a few more that fit alongside Piaf's oeuvre.

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.

While the music and atmosphere are all Piaf, Edie brings her own flair to the show with some surprise numbers, and her love of the dramatic demonstrated by costume changes and sparkle. Come along and feel yourself sink under the spell of the Parisian streets and the sounds they inspire.
