A NIGHT IN PARIS with The Aurora Chanson Trio Live at Eastwell - Saturday 30 September

If you were at the Wild Willy's French Connection concert you won't need an introduction to singer Aurora Chanson. She returns in September, this time with her own Chanson trio.           

With her exceptional voice and stage presence she will take you on a journey through Gay Paris, from the cobbled streets of Montmartre to the Parisien cafés with their old-fashioned charm and romance. Her extensive repertoire includes famous and not so famous French songs - from "Les Feuilles Mortes" (Autumn Leaves) to "La Mer" (Beyond The Sea).        

A tour de force of French retro, the Aurora Chanson Trio will transport you back to the Paris of yesteryear for an evening of superb entertainment.

Main St, Eastwell, Melton Mowbray LE14 4ER

Wild Willy Barrett's French Connection
AUTUMN/WINTER TOUR 2017

From a Parisian café via a Dublin hooley to a New Orleans party with rip-roaring fiddle & banjo.

Imagine stumbling across a smoky back street bar, late night jam: Django Reinhardt and The Pogues; Robert Johnson accompanies Edith Piaf; Bob Marley’s jammin’ with Stéphane Grappelli; Tom Waits joins in. This is French Connection.

At the ensemble’s heart are the undisputed talents of multi-instrumentalist, erstwhile Godfather of grunge folk, Wild Willy Barrett.
As the versatile and heartrending vocals of French singer Aurora Chanson take centre stage, the quartet perform stunning original compositions and arrangements on guitar, cello, harmonium, whistle, fiddle, banjo and Irish pipes.

Enjoy a wonderful evening of unique musical entertainment overlaid with a large dose of dry humour, very different from anything else you will experience in the UK at the moment.
