Edie Daponte presents Under Paris Skies – La Musique d’Edith Piaf; music and entertainment inspired by Paris.

Non Je Ne Regrette Rien; La Vie en Rose; Milord; Sous le Ciel de Paris 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 will help create the atmosphere of an intimate Parisian theatre. Joining Edie are long-time collaborator Joey Smith on bass, and local favourites Karel Roessingh on piano, Jonathan Eng on drums and filling the important role of accordionist, Aaron Watson. All these talented musicians have long careers in the Vancouver Island jazz scene. Under Paris Skies will be a unique show allowing a larger audience to enjoy Edie’s expressive performance in Sidney’s beautiful Charlie White Theatre. Come along and feel yourself sink under the spell of the Parisian streets and the sounds they inspire.
