SonoMusette • The Sound and Spirit of Twentieth Century Paris
SonoMusette recaptures the moody, melancholic sound and spirit of mid twentieth-century Paris in the 'bal-musette' tradition. French chanteuse, musette accordion, gypsy-jazz guitar, upright bass and drum kit combine to revive the enchanting songs of that era. SonoMusette features vocalist Mimi Pirard with Robert Lunceford on accordion, Jason Briggs, guitar; Jan Martinelli on upright bass, and Richard Andrews, drums.
Inspired by the great performers of the era, such as Edith Piaf, Jacques Brel and Django Reinhardt, along with contemporary artists such as Zaz, the superb vocal and instrumental artistry of the ensemble SonoMusette will charm and transport you to an evening in Paris as they bring bal-musette to the 'moderne' era!
Tickets: Advance $20. At the door $25
