Christine Bovill - PIAF - The MAC - Belfast

An award-winning songwriter in her own right, Bovill has toured throughout Europe and the Far East with her self-penned homage to the Little Sparrow, appearing on BBC Newsnight and on BBC Radio 4’s series, Soul Music. During her Edinburgh Fringe sell-out run at the Famous Speigeltent, Bovill realised a lifelong dream when she shared the stage with Charles Dumont, great friend of Piaf and, most famously, composer of Non, Je ne Regrette Rien. They performed several songs together to close the show. PIAF was awarded the Fringe laurels for Total Sell Out Show 2011 and 2012. It received 5 STAR reviews from some of the most respected publications (including The Scotsman).Despite the sorrow of Piaf’s story, this is an evening of celebration – a tale of human triumph over tragedy; and, at its heart, a unique performance by a woman widely regarded as one of the finest interpreters of French Song. “Something that will stay with you for the rest of your life” Sunday Times “Bovill's voice is remarkable, note-perfect and deftly achieving the husky, trembling vibrato needed to carry these songs " Belfast Telegraph “If you love music, and you want to experience something extraordinary, then run, fly, race to book your ticket immediately.” Edinburgh Festival Magazine
