What could be more French than Fifi La Mer at Toulouse Lautrec?
Friday 20th Jan 2023 @ 20:30 – 22:30
Oh La La! mixes Parisian folk music (musette), French chanson with unforgettable 20s upbeat to 50s smooth jazz, film noir/nouvelle vague film music and the occasional rearranged cool 60s French pop tunes with original compositions. You will be transported to Paris with their repertoire of musical gems, and along the way you will get to enjoy tales of mystery, romance and heartache that we so often associate with the city of lights.
The dulcet tones of Parisian born Fifi’s voice and the evocative sound of her accordion blended with the talents of Oliver Wilby on clarinet and accordion will take you straight back to that little café by the Eiffel tower then encouraged by the exuberance of Alex Garnett on tenor saxophone they will take you to that buzzy jazz club by the Pigalle with the help of the beautiful harmony and feel of Simon Picton’s on guitar and the groove of Julian Bury on double bass.
Be prepared for an exhilarating performance by exciting world class musicians
