Little sparrow flies into Warwick

EDITH Piaf became the definitive voice of French music for the 20th century and will be brought back to life in Warwick this month.

The songstress, known for her cabaret singing in the 40s and 50s and now to celebrate the 50th anniversary of her death her music is being celebrated.

Eve Loiseau developed a passion for Piaf at a young age growing up in South East France, and has spent a lifetime capturing the essence of the ‘Little Sparrow’.

She will be performing with violinist Fiona Barrow and accordionist Edward Jay, and songs such as La Vie En Rose and Non Je Ne Regrette Rien will be recreated.

Piaf’s life was the stuff of legend, from her dramatic rise from Paris street urchin to star of international renown.

Her life, however, was anything but La vie en rose, with her later life being overtaken by drugs and injury.

Her songs will fill Warwick Bridge House Theatre on February 18.
