After a hugely successful night with her Piaf show, award winning chanteuse Christine Bovill returns with her new show, Piaf to Pop – a sell-out smash hit at the Edinburgh Fringe 2022.
Here she travels into the 1960s and the Americanisation of French music: le yé-yé. A time of great cultural change in France, would the high art of chanson survive…?
This new show offers a sexy and delicious celebration of the golden age of French song and how it evolved during the swinging sixties.
Singing in both French and English she honours many stars including Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel, Serge Gainsbourg and Francoise Hardy.
