Remembering Piaf - a new monthly evening at The Nightjar
Thirties-inspired jazz and cocktail venue The Nightjar now has a new residency on the first Thursday of the month: Remembering Piaf.
Anna Lowe, understudy to Elena Roger in the Donmar Warehouse’s 2008 production of Piaf, reunites with Marcus Tilt on piano and accordion to deliver the deeply emotional songs of tragic French chanteuse Edith Piaf (1915-1963).
Remembering Piaf is an excellent fit for the Nightjar – its hidden nature, a stone’s throw from Old Street station, recalls Piaf’s humble beginnings singing on the streets of Paris; its Art Deco-inspired interiors reflect the age in which this exceptional songstress grew to fame. The Nightjar aims to make great music an important part of an ordinary night out. Remembering Piaf is an invaluable opportunity to see West-End talent in intimate surroundings whilst sipping world-class cocktails.
With guest appearances by Kelly Price as Marlene Dietrich.
