The incomparable Edie DaPonte performs "Under Paris Skies – The Music of Edith Piaf", a show that combines music and entertainment inspired by the world's most romantic city, Paris.
With her stellar band that includes Joey Smith on bass, Karel Roessingh on piano, Jonathan Eng on drums and Aaron Watson on guitar and accordion, Edie delivers Edith Piaf's music as it was originally intended, with emotion and love. Channelling Piaf, with her rich timbre, powerful vocals and captivating stage presence, Edie creates a completely authentic Parisian theatre experience. She engages the audience, weaving stories from Piaf’s life through the chanteuse’s stirring numbers for a memorable evening of beautiful music.
Growing up in Quebec, in a Portuguese family, Edie (named Edith at birth) would listen to scratchy vinyl recordings of Piaf as a teenager. Edie feels the iconic French singer has always played an important role in her life, and as an adult singer she has witnessed again and again the emotional pull Piaf’s songs have on an audience.
