Celebrate Bastille Day with SonoMusette’s tribute to Edith Piaf! From her beginnings as a child singing on the streets of Paris to becoming an international star, Edith Piaf is undoubtedly the voice of French music. Much of Piaf’s music resonated with her own personal life as she specialized in chanson and torch songs about love, loss, and sorrow. Known as “The Little Sparrow” Piaf ascended beyond the skies of Paris to World-Wide fame through timeless classics such as “Padam,” “Milord,” “L’Accordéoniste,” and “La Vie En Rose.” SonoMusette, featuring native Parisian singer Mimi Pirard, transports us back to mid-1900s Paris through the evocative songs of Piaf. This is the Paris that still lives for many of us in our memories… and in our imaginations. Pirard’s powerful and emotional interpretations of these classic songs provide a freshness and excitement that is faithful to the spirit and tradition of the original versions. The formidable musicians of SonoMusette weave musette accordion, piano, guitar, upright bass, and drums to create a musical tapestry for these enchanting songs and melodies. The concert will also feature a set of music made famous by other iconic French performers of the era. In addition to Pirard, SonoMusette features accordionist, Robert Lunceford, bassist Jan Martinelli, guitarist Isaac Vandeveer, and drummer Kendrick Freeman.
