Legendary French singer Edith Piaf is as well-known for her tragic life and premature death as she is for her music. So it takes a very special performer to create a show that brings you the songs of ‘The Little Sparrow’ and leads you through a potted history of the troubled chanteuse’s life whilst also making you smile. Christine Bovill is that performer. Originally from Glasgow, the former teacher and jazz singer describes Edith Piaf as “an old friend” and her genuine affection for the singer is palpable. Each song is introduced with an explanation of its subject matter and roots, for those of us whose French was a little rusty.
