SonoMusette, featuring native Parisian singer Mimi Pirard, transports us back to mid-1900s Paris through the evocative songs of Edith Piaf.
This is the Paris that still lives for many of us in our memories… and in our imaginations. Mimi Pirard’s powerful and emotional interpretations of these classic songs provide freshness and excitement that is faithful to the spirit and tradition of the original versions. The musicians of SonoMusette weave musette accordion, piano, guitar, upright bass, and drums to create a musical tapestry for these enchanting songs and melodies. The concert will also feature a set of music made famous by other iconic French performers of the era.
From her beginnings as a child singing on the streets of Paris to become an international star, Edith Piaf is undoubtedly the voice of French music. Much of Piaf’s music resonated with her own personal life as she specialized in Chanson and Torch Songs about love, loss, and sorrow. Known as “The Little Sparrow” Piaf ascended beyond the skies of Paris to World-Wide fame through timeless classics such as Padam, Milord, L’Accordéoniste, and La Vie En Rose.
The musicians of band Sonomusette are: Mimi Pirard – vocals / Robert Lunceford – accordion / Jan Martinelli – upright bass & piano / Isaac Vandeveer – guitar & bass / Kendrick Freeman – drums
